5 Places To Go In Akihabara - Tokyo Master

Akihabara is a mecca for otaku people. There are so many shops related to anime, manga, games, idols, or adult stuff. It is also said is the best place to buy PC goods. Here are five places to enjoy deep AKihabara.

#1 Maid cafe

Maid cafe is one of the symbolic things of Akihabara.
Maid cafes are the cafes where waitresses dressed in maid costumes act as servants, and treat customers as masters (and mistresses) in a private home, rather than as café patrons.

You should prepare for going there because it can be very awkward if you don't know what happens there.
You don't need to speak Japanese well, but you have to be cooperative to enjoy maid cafe.

Here's a video about a maid cafe. You can see how it actually is.

#2 Tokyo Anime Center

For anime lovers, you don't want to miss Tokyo Anime Center for sure.
There are always some exhibition of a famous anime. Also, you can check which anime is broadcasted at the moment in Japan.

But if you want to buy anime goods and stuff, you should go other places. There are so many such kinds of shops in Akihabara.

#3 AKB Theater

I'm not sure if you know about it or not, but idol culture is super popular in Japan.
And the most famous idol group called "AKB48" was born in Akihabara, so there is a theater of AKB48 in AKihabara.

Idol culture is very deep actually. From grade school students to 30 year-old ladies dance and sing in a particular way.
And so many people spend so much money on them.
It might be hard to understand for you, but worth watching for the experience.

This is what you can see there. Do not forget to get a ticket online in advance.

#4 Gundam Cafe

Gundam cafe is an iconic cafe in Akihabara, which is a cafe themed of the famous anime "Gundam" and its world - a great place where fans can relax and unwind.

This is nothing like maid cafe. No Gundam serves you anything.
The interior decoration and food are themed of Gundam.

#5 Gachapon Kaikan

Have you heard of Gachapon before? Gachapon is like a vending machine which you can get small toys, figures, card, or something like that.

There are more than 500 Gachapon machine in Gachapon Kaikan.
It basically cost 100 yen or 200 yen(1 or 2 USD). Once you find it attractive, there's no going back.

This video is actually taken in another place in Tokyo, but it's almost the same!
