So you’re planning a trip to Japan, and you just so happen to be a geek and/or a gamer? Boy, do I have some good suggestions for you then!
To be frank, there are countless things you can do and see in Japan, but you can check out most of them just by googling once or twice and you’ll probably get the usual “visit this temple” and “go see that shrine”, but it’s not all that exciting if you’re a geek. Your expectations are way higher than that! So, without further ado, check out these 9 spots geeks and gamers should visit in Japan.
Akihabara – A Geek Paradise
Ah, Tokyo… a city with the most off the wall “personality” shoved into a bunch of grey concrete boxes. That is before you see Akihabara. If it’s in any way related to gaming, gadgets, or otaku stuff – you’ll find it here somewhere. It used to be just a small part of the city, but now it’s one of the most famous geek meccas in the world. Just be prepared to spend a lot of dough here, if you decide to visit it.
