Akihabara Electric Town is a Tokyo suburb with is streets lined with shops that are dedicated to all the latest modern gadgets, music, anime and manga comics. Sometimes called Akiba or Akihaba, this suburb is an amazing place to walk around and check out the sights.
On weekends the main street of Akiba is closed to traffic, and the roads fill with “Otaku” or “geeks” in Japanese. There are plenty anime, gaming, computer and scale modelling shops here for the Otaku to meet each other. Akihabara is around five minutes by train from Tokyo Station.
