An in-depth look at specialty stores: Akihabara Electric Town
It’s fun to stroll through the streets and see what kind of crazy products you can find lined up. Although Akihabara Electric Town is becoming a central location for “Otaku Culture” (games, anime, maid cafes, etc.) in recent years, there are still stores dealing in radio equipment, amateur radio broadcasting, audio, computers, and other specialty items. Core requirements like replacement part and components are also available in this area.
