Akihabara
Akihabara is known as Electric town, and is also called Japan's pop culture center. Akihabara is a bit different from other shopping districts; the town has more specialty stores that cater to enthusiastic fans. The fans include audio fans, PC fans, animation fans, comic fans, comic character fans, video games fans.
Now the pop culture stores are more dominant than electrical stores. Still this is one of the best places to buy electrical appliances, especially PC parts and related gadgets.
