Tokyo - Akihabara
Nothing cultural around here but if you are looking for new or second-hand
LD and CD, the "Electric City" is the place to visit. You will also probably found more video
games that you ever dreamed of. The "Disk map" shop is a must-see. A few more
Liberty and a K-Book will help you keep busy and spent what's left of
your money... (Did I mentioned that Disk Map takes credit card ?).
When you go out of Akihabara's JR station, you are welcomed by a stupid
music that is played very loud in the street and during the whole day (I
didn't checked the night). If you wanted to know where Gibson get his idee
for "Neuromencer", you found the place : Computers, video games and electronic
shops everywhere (but nothing to eat)...
