The Allure of Akihabara

Destinations, Trip Inspiration

Akihabara, the region surrounding Akihabara Station in Tokyo, is an otaku’s paradise–and a wallet’s mortal foe.

There are innumerable shops here devoted wholeheartedly to anime, games, and electronics: One Piece, Demon Slayer, Pokemon, Dragon Quest, you name it. It’s far too easy to spend $200 on limited-edition figurines.

Like I said: otaku’s paradise. Maid cafes as well happen to be sprinkled throughout the area.
