I’ve spent my Easter holidays in East Asia, most of them in the magnificent city of Tokyo – and, as every time I am in the area, I have paid a visit to Akihabara, the historical otaku district. Even though now the young and trendy geeks of Tokyo have elected Nakano Broadway instead (see this) as their haven, I still have a soft spot for Akihabara. Maybe because there are some unique features, such as the Gundam Cafe, or the HQ of Mandarake. Have a look below and have a taste.
Especially if you are a collector of manga and toys, you’ll find Mandarake something not to be missed – seven stores of treasuries. More can be found on the official website.
