Recommendation by Lemi
Akihabara is famous for its devotion to otaku (オタク, fans of anime and manga) culture! Known for its abundance of arcades, the district is your top choice for a day of fun and games. Marvel at pros expertly maneuvering consoles at Hirose Entertainment Yard, relive your childhood at retro game shangri-la Super Potato, or spend all your change on the gachapons (ガチャポン, vending machines that dispense small toys) at Akihabara Gachapon Kaikan! Nicknamed “Electric Town,” Akihabara is also known for the technology shops that line its streets. Yodobashi Akiba sells everything from computers to accessories. Maid cafes are also popular must-visits here, where waitresses treat customers like masters. Just follow the French maid costume-clad ladies to stumble upon one!
