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