Akihabara Electric Town

It's been a while since I've been thinking about a post regarding to awesome Akihabara district (秋葉原電気街) aka Electric Town, one of the most famous zones of Tokyo because it's the major shopping area for electronic, computer, anime, and otaku goods, including new and used items.
Last week I decided to buy a Super Famicom, so I took my camera and headed to "Akiba" wondering If I would be able to find a legendary store called "Super Potato"( スーパーポテト), a retro gaming heaven, a true Mecca for all the old school videogamers where you can find anything from Pong to PSX. Finally I reached the place and here you can find some pictures I took of it and it's surrondings.

Otaku subculture at it's most

3rd Floor mainly stands for Famicom & SuperFamicom

These ones are like the good wine, they just get better.
