Manga, anime, idols and cosplay. These four words are the only way to explain the ever-growing popularity of Akihabara.
With countless shops that sell character goods and costumes, this place is the spiritual home for all of the so-called “otakus” or anime lovers. While there are huge shops like Yodobashi Camera, electronic and tech lovers gather to scavenge through tiny countless specialty parts shops. Find your favorite anime character and meet other fans in Akihabara. Unique shot bars and cafes are hidden in narrow streets not too far from the main area.
Escape the real life and dive into a subcultural fantasy!
