One of the best-known electronics districts of Japan and increasingly famous the world over, Alihabara is the home to countless discount shops that sell consumer electronics, PC parts, audio products, and much more. Recently, Akihabara has also become internationally known for a focus on Japanese animation and games, which have enjoyed a surge in global popularity of late. The district is fast establishing itself as a dream destination for lovers of Japanese animation from across the planet.
At the center of the district, redevelopment is now underway around Akihabara Station. In 2005, Akihabara Cross Field opened as a complex filled with offices, conference halls, and other spaces. While temples and shrines showcase Tokyo’s history, Akihabara is a window into the city’s dynamic present and emerging future. Access is easy from the Keio Plaza Hotel, involving only a 5-minute walk to Shinjuku Station and a 20-minute ride to Akihabara Station on the JR Sobu Line.
