Akihabara at Night

As a nerd, Akihabara is one of the places on the must-see list when in Tokyo. Akihabara is the electric town – hundreds of shops with video games, electronics, flashing lights everywhere, maid cafés, otaku culture, manga shops, … This is one of the stereotypes for Tokyo you need to satisfy. Visiting it on a rainy night gives you a bit of that blade runner feeling I had in various corners of the city. You just wait for Harrison Ford landing a flying car next to you, hunting for runaway replicants.
