Things to know

The Akibahara Radio Center is a shopping arcade for electronics in the Akihabara Electric Town area of Tokyo, Japan. It is crowded with small local electronics stores that sell computer components and other tools. It has an old-fashioned flair to it that evokes the Japan of the second half of the twentieth century. In fact, the center's history goes back to the early post-war period when Japan was occupied by the United States (GHQ). The Akihabara Radio Store that closed in 2013 was very similar to the Akihabara Radio Center.

The Akihabara Radio Center is a two-storey shopping center located under an elevated railway near the Electric Town entrance of Akihabara station and consists of small stores selling electronic components mainly for computers and radios. Often overlooked and kept in the shadows of Akihabara's "otaku" culture, the Akihabara Radio Center is the original heart of Akihabara as it was known as the "cyber-brain town" after WWII. A place for old-school electronics enthusiasts (I wasn't really one), I could only walk through the alleys and see the culture that has lasted since the late 1940's. Overall, a nice little trip back in time to Akihabara's past.
