This a a great area for gadget fans of all ages, from 1pm on a Sunday they close the main street to all vehicles so is a pleasant place to people watch.

There is so much to see and do in Akihabara! Gaming, manga, anime, electronics, parts, maid cafes, and FOOD! I love it here! Don't miss the Don Quixote store - 5 floors of everything including costumes, household goods, food, makeup, and souvenirs!
