If you are looking for electronics? Look no further. This place has it all. Comics, anime and everything else nerdy and geeky it also has. I loved this part of Tokyo. You should definetly go!

I mean that in a good way. We had a great time and I didn't want to leave. I was able to pick a few items that I have been admiring for some time. Being an avid fan of Manga and Anime all of my life, even I felt little overwhelmed. Loved it and I want to go back.

Wanna buy electronics? Akihabara is the place. You get down from the train and the path leads out the station is through shops. Fragnance, Pearl Jewelry and of course Electronics. You name it. Its actually called Electronic City.

An experience just to walk around this area, neon signs and sounds everywhere. Make sure to say you want to buy products for usage in Europe.

Came here off the back of a friends recommendation and wow what an experience. The place of filled with game rooms, anime figurines, the latest high tech electronics and even girls dressed as anime characters everywhere. If you have any love for anime, gaming or electronics make your way here as you will not be disappointed. Weirdly awesome all round.

Wow, this place is amazing with all of the shops and foreigners all shopping for products. I saw people carrying three rice cookers in each hand. I went to the store called Yodobashi and purchased a GShock watch and it was duty free. The clerk made it a point to show me that this watch was indeed made "in Japan".... More

This is a great location to get anime and manga stuff. There are loads of interesting video games here as well. If you are a fan of anime, you will definitely love this place!! Just take note that you would not be able to find every anime/manga here. Only those that are popular in Japan.

Neighborhood Profile
Ochanomizu / Akihabara / Kanda
Ochanomizu boasts its academic foundations starting with Yushima Seido, the birthplace of modern day Japanese education. The area has kept its college town feel with several university campuses. If you head towards Jinbocho, you'll find musical instrument and sports equipment shops, and an area of used bookstores for students and anyone interested in literature and the arts. Akihabara is well-known for its computer and electronic goods stores, and is now hugely popular as the must-visit mecca for people interested in anime and games. Kanda is an office district where you can find loads of reasonably priced izakayas popular with professionals who stop to eat and drink before making their way home.
