Akihabara – is it the dream of every Figure Collector to be in the home and world of anime series?
Worked hard and saved up some moolah for a week’s trip to Japan? Are you thinking to yourself – “I must visit all the anime stores and buy some collectables back”? That’s right, I had this thought 6 months into my full-time work and told myself it is a good time to take a break. Akihabara is famed for being known as the electric town as it sells a lot of electronic goods. Over time, it became the place to go to for pop-culture and anime-culture consumer goods.
I went to Tokyo from 22nd March 2019 and 6th April 2019. It was a total period of 14 days, excluding flight time that has transferred in Bangkok, Thailand. Tokyo was just one of the places I went – I did travel out to the nature areas and popular tourist places too.
I will share with you the top 5 places to visit to purchase your favourite character and anime merchandise in Akihabara. For reading ease, I will be splitting my list up. Finding these places can be difficult but do not worry as they are all listed on Google Maps. Do Google the names and save/bookmark the places to your favourites!
