We introduce attractive spots in Chiyoda Ward chosen by Editor-in-Chief Marei: 

One of the most famous places in Tokyo is Akihabara, or short “Akiba”. Formerly known as Tokyo’s “Electric Town” where you could find every single part for radios and computers – no matter how rare –, the area has gradually transformed into an otaku sanctuary with lots of manga, anime, cosplay, and figures. It’s a diverse, fun, buzzing town you HAVE to visit!
We hope this list of amazing places will give you some ideas about where to go when visiting Akihabara to get the full “Akiba experience”.
