About Akihabara

It’s a town that has developed greatly as an electric town, with many stores selling electronic devices.
Today, it’s a “holy land for otaku”, incorporating the culture of anime, games, and maid cafes.

The area we call Akihabara refers to the area around Akihabara station in Tokyo’s Chiyoda Ward, but in reality, it’s a conceptualized area, so it differs from the original address, and the place each person thinks of as Akihabara constitutes the Akihabara area.
