Akihabara refers to the eastern side of the Chiyoda section of Tokyo. Akihabara is sometimes referred to as the "Electric City" because of the high concentration of stores selling all things electronic. Find the latest video games, gadgets, iPods, and cameras at Yodobashi Akiba, a nine-story flagship store, or peruse the Tokyo Animation Center where you can watch showings and demonstrations on gaming and animation. Literally almost every shop deals with electronics, so the possibilities are endless for technology lovers!
