Tips from the community

Akihabara, the electric city, is a hodgepodge collection of anime and gaming culture, kawaii culture, and old-timey electronic stores. One of the most fascinating areas in the city- spend the morning at an arcade, grab some creamy omurice at a maid cafe, and finish the day by exploring vintage electronic stores. Along with iconically being *the place* to go for maid cafes, Akihabara is an overflowing, eccentric, cultural powerhouse.
