You will note the huge Akihabara station in the center of the map, around this area is where many of the duty free electronics shops are located and continue up Chuo Dori. Chuo Dori is closed to traffic on Sundays and the whole area is filled with Japanese Otaku (Geeks). Laox’s Main store was once the largest electronics store in Japan until Yodabashi Camera opened a few years back on the other side of Akiba Station.
