About Akihabara

Akihabara (“Field of Autumn Leaves”), also known as Akihabara Electric Town is an area of Tokyo, Japan. It is located less than five minutes by rail from Tokyo Station. Its name is frequently shortened to Akiba in Japan. While there is an official locality named Akihabara nearby, part of Taito-ku, the area known to most people as Akihabara (including the railway station of the same name) is actually Soto-Kanda, a part of Chiyoda-ku.

Akihabara is a major hub of activity for electronic, computer, anime, and otaku goods, including new and used items. Entertainment pavilions, tools, electrical parts, wires, microsized cameras and similar items are found in the cramped passageways of Soto Kanda (near the station). New age parts for PC-building are readily available from a variety of stores.

Foreign tourists tend to visit the big name shops like Laox or other speciality shops near the station, though there is more variety and lower prices at locales a little further away. Akihabara gained some fame through being home to one of the first stores devoted to personal robots and robotics.
