Akihabara (or “Akiba” for short) was previously known as “Electric Town” due to the high concentration of shops selling electrical goods that used to occupy the area. However, the area has now morphed into the sub-culture capital of the world, attracting obsessed anime superfans (Anime Otaku), from all over the globe, who visit the numerous shops selling comic books, games, toys, figurines and all sorts of merchandise.
In Japan, the word “Otaku” can be most closely equated to “geek, nerd or enthusiast” in English. If that describes you or you simply want some help exploring, then this tour is perfect for you as we will take you to the best stores so that you can pick up any anime or manga gems that are on your list to collect.
