Are you looking for 5-key, or beatmania IIDX? If IIDX, I'm told https://2dera.net/iidx_map/ is a good map.
Appreciate your reply, photaco.

Definitely looking for 5-key (e.g., Beatmania Final).

That's convenient. The former, not the latter! :-) Is it safe to presume Pachinko parlors abound? Wife has never been to one. Personally I've never seen the mindless appeal of it. But then again, I'm not a Slots player either...

It's not a terribly large arcade, but it's unique, and has the very first Street Fighter arcade game (which, IIRC, is actually called Fighting Street).
I visited once and thought the HK-style entrance was just about the only interesting thing about the place.

What game is this?

Went to a few arcades in Akhiba including two Sega ones. Wasn't very impressed; lots of claw machine floors and Final Fantasy rooms (not my thing); but then I didn't seek out any with VR games. Took the following video at the Taito arcade in Akhiba--probably the coolest looking game I saw. Anyone know what it is?
