Discover Akihabara, the Electric Town! Otaku and Geek center of Tokyo, Akiba is THE shopping district for all things anime, manga and gaming! Mostly designed as a shopping tour, we will discover the best stores of the neighborhood, most of them hidden in towers full of dozens of stores. In the maze that is Akihabara, finding a specific product can often lead to hours of lost time! If you are looking for particular brands, items or characters to add to your collection, as your personal shopper, I'm here to help you find it. Rare items, low priced figures, Japanese exclusives...we'll make sure that you bring home everything you were looking for! Between two stores, we'll visit Arcade Game Centers, retro gaming paradises, a quiet temple, or even an artisan market! And before we finally part ways, we'll eat the cutest Tayaki in town!
Eat the cutest Tayaki in town! This famous Japanese pastry is filled with red bean paste, custard cream or chocolate.
