Wired hat ein schönes Special über Akihabara, dem Elektronik-Viertel in Tokyo.

Akihabara, Tokyo’s historic electronics district, has morphed into a geek paradise filled with videogames, pop-culture collectibles and other nerd attractions.

Originally home to a vast array of stores selling consumer goods, Akihabara is now the center of otaku culture. While some outlets still offer great deals on home appliances, the area brims with games, anime, toys and “maid cafes,” where girls in cosplay outfits serve tea to tired shoppers.
