Nimoko’s Nippon Blog – Akihabara

Konnichi-wa minna!

Today I am going to show you the part of Tokyo that makes every Anime-Boy and -Girl’s heart beat faster: Akihabara! You find everything you need, from Anime figures and plushes to dolls, pillows, clear files…

Akihabara is also popular for Anime Second-hand shops, where you can find some very rare treasures 🙂 Let me give you a glance of Tokyo’s Anime paradise!

In Akiba (short version of Akihabara) everything is anime-themed. Even building decorations…

My first reaction arriving at Akiba was just over-excitement. So much to explore…

It took us three full days to see most of Akihabara, as there are many shops several floors high…

Just a small impression of an Anime Shop…

Taito Stations are the most popular for UFO Catching! Some machines contain figures, others plushes or other anime goods. I can’t say which one is the most easy to handle, as I am very bad at all of this 😀

I saw that it is indeed possible to figure it out well, but it needs a lot of practice and 100 Yen coins 😀

These Pikachus are just too kawaii (cute)!!

Do you remember the Gashapon machines I told you about? In Akiba you’ve got plenty of them so that there are even shops specialized to these little Gashapon balls!

Second-hand shops in Akiba. For me the most interesting ones. You can find very rare items and even Anime merch in very good condition but less expensive. Really worth visiting!

IMG_5462I hope you enjoyed the small trip to Tokyo’s Anime heaven!

 

Kiwotsukete ne! (Take care of yourself!)
