Akihabara is (in)famous as the headquarters of everything manga, anime, and games, a colorful paradise for every geek and Otaku! Tokyo’s “Electric Town”, located on the eastern side of the central Chiyoda ward. The area houses thousands of shops selling every technological gadget you can imagine, from computers to gaming consoles and vacuums to DVDs, at rather reasonable prices.

  1. Wahahaha, that Frieza made my day. Hanapin ko nga yan sa Akihabara Hahaha.
    Grabe ang ganda talaga ng Japan 🇯🇵. Kahit matataong lugar malinis.
    By the way kumusta yung prices nung mga camera sa bargain store?

  2. I love the picture of how nicely they plate the rice. My older went to Japan this past January and she said it’s the best experience of her life.

  4. I went to Akiba two months ago with my sister. I have been there many times (as I live in Japan), so I can recognize the places in the photos. Did you see the DDR machines on like the 3rd or 4th floor of that game center? My sister and I played the heck out of those!
