I made a short trip to Akihabara – the Electric Town.
Around the station:
A map of Akihabara – packed with stores!
From the street:
Yodobashi Camera – HUGE electric department store.
There are so many small stores that sell small parts:
One of many arcades:
Lots of Anime stores and figure stores there, too:
From Dragon Ball:
and… I have heard about them from friends, but never seen the real scene… but there they were, the maids! Everywhere! There are so many “Maid Cafe” in Akihabara where all these girls dressed up as maids and serve you food and drink as you are the master. I heard that now they do a tour around Akihabara and show you around town as maid service. Yes, very bizarre. Only in Japan.
These girls were promoting the cafe outside with flyers on their hands.
