Mr. Donut is also everywhere. I don't know if there's any special store menu at that particular Mr. Donut, though. Some stores do that, don't know if Mr. Donut is one of them.

I know someone who likes the Star Kebob there (not a bad place, either), and I'm a fan of the Crazy Crepe. I usually try to go there at least once. Too bad there's no Hokka Hokka Tei in Akiba...


The view from the second floor of the Akiba location was pretty awesome. I stopped in several Mr. Donut locations from Tokyo all the way down to Hiroshima.

If you like the anime or video game part of Japanese culture and want to come as close as possible to overloading your senses with it, I'd say it's worth setting aside some time on your trip to go there. I spent about a half day there on each of my past two trips to Japan in 2007 and 2010. It was fun. Yes, tons of anime-related stores, as you might expect-- books, DVDs, figures, cosplay items, all manner of other trinkets (and some expensive stuff too). Maid cafes (and variations thereof) too. I didn't play any of the UFO catcher games or capsule toy dispensers myself, but they're there too.

Is it true that u can also get hot food items like Pizza from the vending machines there? I thought I remember reading that u can get almost anything out of a vending machine in Japan.


Yep. That is true. Ramen, hot coffee, pizza. It varies but, yes, hot foods, drinks,

Thinking of vending machines... I saw a vending machine that sold milk in old school glass bottles in Hakone. Next to that vending machine was another vending machine that sold hot meals.

Instead of going shopping at Super Potato, there are a few places in Chiba that have all the stuff you'll find in Akihabara, but at a fraction of the cost. I picked up a dreamcast, two controllers, 4 memory cards, and 2 guns for about 6000yen.

that was in May this year.
