Akihabara, Tokyo

Previous post: Hiroshima to Tokyo

Date: 18 December 2012

 

The night before, when we arrived at Ueno Station, Tokyo:

 

That morning we came back to Ueno Station:

 

Our first destination was Akihabara Station:

 

At the square outside the station, we realised that there’s free wi-fi, courtesy of JR East, so we did some updating on Facebook 🙂

 

While Aina posed in front of the AKB48 Cafe & Shop. Her cousin is a fan of AKB48’s 🙂 :

 

It was not the station that we were interested in. We wanted to take the kids to the “IT Heaven” of Tokyo, Akihabara 🙂

 

Most of the time DH and I just waited and enjoyed “people-watching” while the kids surveyed what’s on offer along this famous road:

 

It was a clear morning, and still very autumn-ish here:

 

It sure brought a lot of memories of when I spent 7 weeks in Aug-Sept 2004 here. At least twice or trice a week my fellow trainees and I would come here on our way back from our training centre to our accomodation in Tokyo Kenshu Centre in Kita-Senju 🙂

 

A lot of secondhand shops for cameras & gears:

 

as well as brand new ones too:

 

Akihabara is also a heaven for computers, handphones & other IT gadgets:

 

For game lovers too!

 

We came across a halal joint:

 

and decided to have our lunch (before we adjourned to the next destination) 🙂
