Not that I've experienced all that there Tokyo or Japan has to offer, but the novelty of the city has become common place. But last nights stop at Akihabara after sumo with Craig and Charity , was a good place for some new blog worthy pictures. Akihabara is a flashy, loud electronics neighborhood in east Tokyo full of anime and gaming where otaku find all their fantasies come true.
Figurines are popular in Akihabara. You can find pretty much any figure in this shop...from animal trophy heads to transformers to grow your own grass kits.
