Akihabara Electrical Town
Akihabara Electric Town is known primarily for two things: it is the center of Japan’s consumer electronic culture, as well as the center point for much of the city’s anime and manga culture, including “maid cafes.” The electronics in the area are sold in huge megastores alongside small, locally owned shops. You can buy just about anything here including new and used cameras, computer parts, peripherals, video games, cellular phones, televisions, appliances and more. The anime culture is much more interesting. Here you can find collectible anime and manga items like figures, games, DVDs, etc.
