The neighbourhood of Akihabara that surrounds the JR railway station is known as "Electric Town" ("Denki-Gai" in Japanese). It has always attracted technology geeks, as the vertical shops on Chuo-dori and the surrounding streets illustrate. This is the epicentre of Japan's pop culture. Whether you are an old hand or a novice, you will be captivated, bowled over, swept along or exhausted by the crowds and neon lights of this hectic area.
