Information

Since the 1970′s, when it is said that Japan-produced technology began to catch up with the rest of the world’s forerunners, Japanese electric appliances have gained world-wide popularity. Akihabara, which developed alongside the trending popularity of these Japanese products, is renowned as the “electric city.” As Japanese brands gained more and more success internationally, more and more tourists flocked to Akihabara from all over the world. The district first debuted as the “electric city” then gained attention as a pop culture trend-setting area for video games, comic books, anime, and figurines, and still today millions of tourists from everywhere in the world visit Akihabara. Be sure to visit “Akiba,” Japan’s holy ground of pop culture and one of the most influential sites spreading Japanese pop culture around the world.
