Akihabara, one of my favorite places in Tokyo, is a paradise for all anime fans like me. Once you come out from Akihabara station, all anime, comic, games posters are everywhere. Arcade, UFO (doll catching machine), comic character models, you can find all your favourite characters here. We spent quite a lot of money on doll catching game, but somehow when you spent a certain amount and still unable to catch your doll, their friendly staff will give you a helping hand to ‘adjust’ the doll in an easy catch position, so... spend more and you will definitely get a doll home!
I picked Akihabara to stay based on comments I had read online and I wasn't disappointed. Akihabara is very easy to get to as it's in the middle of Tokyo and quite close to Tokyo station if you decide to take the train. at night there are beautiful things to see and do. lots of manga/anime shops, arcades, maid coffees, video games shop..

Akihabara is a commercial district in Tokyo, which is different from Ginza. Ginza is the place where only the most expensive people buy. The Akihabara principle is the place where they shop. There's everything. Even A film is sold on a single floor. So tourists all over the world flock there to shop. There are very few advertisements on the walls of the whole Tokyo city. Only Akihabara's floors are full of advertisements. It's very busy inside and outside. Good place to go. Whether you like ACG, or want to find pot friends who like beauty equipment, game consoles, handheld computers, cameras, watches, cosmetics, skin care products, handheld, etc., don't hesitate to take at least a whole day to come to Akihabara. Here, these things are only unexpected, not unavailable. Especially in Autumn Yeyuan Train Station near the Friends are eight happy must not miss! Basic types of electrical appliances are available, the price of electrical appliances is relatively favorable, but the makeup is slightly more expensive than Matsumoto Qing, plus the cooperation between UnionPay and Friends Baxi, any consumer UnionPay card will enjoy a 95% discount on the basis of tax-free. When buying an apple or a game console that needs to be connected to the internet, it is suggested to ask the guide if there is a lock area before purchasing it. It is not fun to buy it back and use it.
Akihabara in addition to the well-known electrical street or animation world. Here are basically open at 10:00 a.m., each building is a characteristic electronics business, from their buildings can see whether it is selling electrical appliances or related to animation! There are many Cosplay boys and girls, as well as old uncles and aunts full of childlike hearts. As long as you have a young heart, you can wear whatever you like. Don't be surprised to see the different people here! Unlike most Tokyo people, they are happy to take pictures with you, thanks to their fancy appearance, of course. Here on weekdays, we need to see cars and signals when crossing the street. On holidays, we can take pictures and play in the street without fear. The Japanese government has released the wild inside of us vividly. No matter where it is, as long as it is a commercial street, as long as it is a holiday, the streets will be sealed up, very safe. If you have to pay attention on weekdays, you must pay attention to safety.
Electronic, gaming, cosplay, computer, slot machine and UFO Catch paradise
