With lights that live up to its "electric town" nickname, the Akihabara neighborhood draws electronics and games enthusiasts to its central Tokyo location. Here, you can browse stocks of anime side by side with ardent devotees or brave the noise and stimulation of a pachinko arcade. Nearby Kanda Myojin is an ancient Shinto shrine that provides a peaceful respite from the madness.
Akihabara was Facebook fan Eka Cahyaning Ramadhan's choice for a featured urban destination.
