Ian takes you on a tour of Tokyo’s Akihabara Electric Town. Via DangerousProto:
The SEG Electronics Market in Shenzhen is definitely bigger, but Akihabara is a lot easier to get to. Americans can visit Japan with just a passport, you need a $200 visa to visit SEG in China.
If you want to visit Akihabara on your own, this Akihabara Google Map layer will help you find everything. Add it to Google Maps on your phone before you go.
In the words of the great Liz Lemon: “I want to go to there.”
