After leaving the Iwakura shopping centre, we proceeded to our second pinball location – Korona World Komaki. It only took around 8 minutes by car.

Korona World is a big amusement centre in Komaki. Through a collaboration with the Japan Game Museum, the centre has set up a dedicated area for retro games since early this year.  It is a so-called “mini-JGM”.

There are six pinballs and some vintage video games

  • Gemini (1978Gottlieb)
  • Surfing (1972, Sega Japan)
  • Carnival (1971, Sega Japan)
  • Playboy (1978 ,Bally)
  • Rocky & Bullwinkle (1993, Data East)
  • The Addams Family (1992, Bally)

It was very exciting and amazing for me to see the Gemini game. According to the ipdb.org, only 300 units were produced in 1978.  I believe, it is one of the few still functional in the world.

Again, I could get high score and 3 replay credits on my first play of this game.  (^o^)/

High score!

I believe the Rocky & Bullwinkle game might have been acquired from the Mono Mania Shopping Centre, so this is my second time seeing it within four years.

Another amazing game is the Sea Raider (1969).  As I understand it, the game was totally not functional when it was first delivered to the JGM.  It eventually became functional after JGM spent a lot of hard work and passion on it.
