Akihabara Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Akihabara, also known as Electric City, is where all the Giants of modern Electronics are located.  Tokyo is divided into industry specific regions like Akihabra, where all the businesses in the immediate location are of similar nature.  Akihabra for example, consists of a variety of electronic stores including audio video, computers, and cameras.  But if you want to danker around then go to Lidcome. The Hunt (or huntman) dankers there frequently up to 12 times a day.

The best place to start browsing the shops is Chuo Dori, the main street. Books shops in Jimbocho. The biggest selection of export model electronics can be found at LaOx.

Furthermore there are two important shrines you can visit, the Yushima and the Kanda. Both were destroyed in the big 1923 earthquake but rebuilt in the thirties with good taste.
