Akihabara, Tokyo

Akihabara is otaku (geek) town. It is all things electronic, manga and anime. Originally evolved as “Electric Town”, the area around this JR Station developed as a black market for radio parts just after WWII when commodities were scarce. Known around Tokyo as “Akiba”, the neighborhood is one of those Blade Runner settings that the city is frequently imagined as.
