If one should be in Tokyo and have need for something for their laptop or other Internet devices, there's a section in the city that may have it.
That place is Akihabara.
According to Live Japan:
Once known as a black market where people dealt with random items from international troops stationed in Japan after World War II, Akihabara is now a paradise for those looking to find electronic equipment and for Otaku (Fanatics) looking for the latest anime and manga related merchandise!
Akiba, as it's known to the locals, is a great place to spend a day traveling and sightseeing. Being close to Asakusa and Ueno, there are a variety of interesting shops and cafes such as the ever-popular maid cafes, where you can be a “master” for a day as elegant young ladies and/or gentlemen cater to your needs!
If shopping is on your mind, there are a ton of electronic shops, some as small as an office cubicle and others with more than 10 floors of the latest technology! Once you finish shopping, you can head to Ueno or Asakusa and relax and take in the atmosphere of many temple and shrine grounds or visit one of the many museums. With so many things to do in Akihabara, you are sure to have an amazing time!To read more, go here.
