Explore the weird and wonderful world of otaku - the so-called ‘geek culture’ of gaming superfans - in Akihabara, the district famed for it. Your host’s insight into otaku is essential if you have a hope of deciphering its many subcultures, trends, and hotspots! You could discover Mandrake, an eight-floor archive of collectibles and comics, or if you’re more intrigued by Japan’s gadgets and gizmos, you might prefer Yodobashi Camera. Discover the true meaning of kawaii (cute) at AKB48 Cafe, a sweet treat paradise dedicated to Akihabara’s favorite J-Pop girl group, or grab a bite at a maid cafe, where costumed waitresses will treat you like royalty before you check out Nakano Broadway, Tokyo’s mecca to anything and everything anime!
Dive head-first into Tokyo’s kaleidoscope of pop-culture in its famous geek hub, Akihabara, where video games, anime, and electronics rule everything - including your imagination. In Japan, anyone obsessed with these things are called otaku, and in Akihabara, they flaunt their fixations in the form of cosplay, intricate costumes of their favorite characters complete with rainbow-colored wigs. After you take a stroll along Chuo Dori, Akihabara’s main street that branches off into a labyrinth of stores overflowing with grinning geeks, your host will lead you to Nakano Broadway, a manga megastore that epitomizes Tokyo’s craziest obsessions. With your host by your side, you’ll overcome the chaos and witness this unique wonderland at its best.
