What kind of image do you have of Akihabara?  Otaku's? Maid cafe's? Electronics?  Well, they are all right, but there are also many spots which are very unique.  I will introduce you to some spots which may not be well known by tourists, but are "must go" places in Akihabara.

<Megane super - AKIBA>

This is a glasses chain store, located right outside the ticket gate of Akihabara station.  What is so unique about this store is that there is an MC who tries to get customers by rapping, saying something along the lines of "Hey yo! A set of frame and glasses are ** yen just for now! YO!"  It's a good laugh.

<Buki-ya (weapon store)>

As the name of the store says, they sell replicas of many kinds of weapons, such as Katana, Ninja tools, sabel, guns and so on.  These weapons are made out of metal and are very detailed.  I doubt you can take anything from this store with you on the plane ride back home, but if you like weapons from movies, games, or dramas - you definitely wanna check this store out.

<Super Potato Akihabara>

They sell "retoro (retro)" games and systems, such as the Famicom (Nintendo Entertainment System) and Super-Famicom.  If you are in your 30s, it will bring many memories from your childhood days.  They also made a retro arcade game corner, in which you can play old style arcade games.

If you have a chance to go to Akihabara, don't forget to check these places!
