Electric Town Akihabara


Today we visited Akihabara, a lively, loud an colorful neighbourhood in Tokyo, completely filled with electronics, manga, anime and game shops! Here are some impressions of this hectic area.


Manga and Anime everywhere you look

Thousands of weirdly shaped buildings filled with games, dvds, books and electronics


Neon lights and signs everywhere


Extravagant manga cars


The benches are all filled with people playing games on their Nintendo DS’s!


This radiant cocktail is called “Tokyo Skytree”, named after the huge tower in Tokyo :-)


It’s not all huge bright stores in Akihibara, there are many of these tiny alleys with small electronic stores and stalls.


Some fresh yakitori (chicken skewers), in a tiny restaurant built underneath the traintracks
