Japan's No.1 shopping area for electrical goods with more than 500 stores attracting thousands of visitors. After World War II, the Akihabara area became known as place to buy electrical items such as household appliances and small parts for larger machines at low prices. Today, it is still the same as before, but only bigger and better, and PC stores are particularly popular as well as stores selling plastic models and figurines.
