Akihabara, Tokyo: 46 reviews and 90 photos

by leanne_pearc

Akiabara also known as electronic city is filled with gaming, anime, all types of electronics, collectibles associated with anime and anime porn stores. Most shop people don't speak English so it was difficult to find out about there latest electronics however it was great to walk through!

The maid cafes are also located in this area. We managed to find one, using a Japanese map, just to have a look. It was slightly expensive for us to go in.

After my visit i bought a wii and now im addicted to games!
