There’s so much to say at about Akihabara, or ‘Akiba’ as it’s also known. It’s the single greatest destination in the world for gamers, anime lovers, PC nerds, electronics geeks and Otaku of every creed. Here’s a few photos taken in September 2012 on an otaku shopping trip/pilgrimage to this legendary area.

For more information, you should visit (the equally legendary!) DannyChoo.com. For articles about life in Tokyo and Japanese pop culture, it’s a fantastic site, and a must-visit destination for his regular Akihabara articles and photo galleries.
