Today we went to Akibahara, the consumer electronics center of Tokyo.

The place is nuts. As someone else said, when he heard that Tokyo Disneyland was planning construction, “What for? Tokyo is already Disneyland.” Amen.

Otherwise, knock yourself out.

Besides consumer electronics, there’s a section for makers – tools, meters, components, cable, micro soldering irons, etc.

We wrapped up our Akihabara visit with a stop at the notoriously huge  Yodobashi Camera store. Eight floors (nine if you count the admin offices) chock full of computers, smart phones, games, appliances, plus books, clothes, a giant food court, and more. Like a department store with the first five floors devoted to stuff you plug in or charge up.

No, except for the little critter above, I didn’t take photos inside the store. Some places it’s allowed, some not, and I’ll pass on the hassle.

After Akihabara, we moved on to Ochanomizu, which I had read was a musical instrument district. Perhaps ‘district’ is a little grand for a short street in a quiet, pretty section of the city, but the street is indeed crammed with instruments, mostly of the guitar variety. Herewith, a few pics…
