Don't let the peaceful image of Akihabara station fool you. This is an area buzzing with gaudy colours, garish signage, megaphone marketing and maid cafes. It is every foreigner's stopover to buy some gadget that is not available at home, like Panasonic's Gopan at the giant Ishimaru store. And a place populated by nerdy Japanese geeks known as otaku / おたく as it is a paradise for manga, anime and video games.
