PS Vita ..

I never been to Akihabara.. I will bring some friends, then the first thing I will do is make a tour, take a look at every shops, stop by at the books, look for manga's and buy them, then on the gamers area look for interesting things to bring home, then to the other shop find some anime figurines, and if I had enough money I will buy a set and some Gadgets.. but before taking a tour, I should have loads of foods.. and take some selfie photos

and I won't forget to buy some souvenirs..

and if there's a lot of time, I will enjoy everything that I saw, touch, talk to.. and that's it.. and ready to go back..

No preference.

Haven't been to Akihabara, but I'd definitely try to find all the light novels I've been wanting to fill my bookshelf with. I'd also visit the Gundam Cafe or the AKB48 cafe

I play a ton of fighting games, so if I went to Japan, arcades would be my first goal. Besides that, I want to go to the themed cafes they have, Tsundere, FFXIV, maid. There's so much to see and so much to do. I tried out Akiba's Trip at E3 and I really want to play it while I'm there using Akiba's Trip as a map. Unfortunately, I know I'm still far off from visiting, I have to graduate college first, of course.

If I go to Akihabara the first thing I'll do is to go those maid cafes and see how they really are, then go to the anime shops and buy as much anime as I can. That's for one thing to do, the other is that I really want to experience Japanese pop culture and to learn more about Tokyo and its surroundings. A person must feel overwhelmed by so many people in that neighborhood and the various places one can visit.

My bro wanted this game but he's broke so.. so yeah:P Thanks for making this contest!

I haven't been to Akihabara, but if I get a chance to go there, these are the things I want to do:

1) Go to a gaming store that sells new and old games and buy 2-3 games such as psp games (otome games for example), ps2 games, etc. etc. (depending on the prices):P
2) Go to a maid cafe and taste their delicious omurice and desserts and get pics with the maids.
3) Go to a store that sells posters, plushies, etc. etc. and buy some of my fav anime in there.
4) LOL, sing Hime hime song (Yowamushi Pedal reference) while walking around in there.
5) Check arcade and play rhythm games:PP
6) Take pictures of Akiba.
7) Window-shopping

First stop is the @home cafe, where they have english speaking maids. While there some cute maid will become my new bff! Then Im searching the shops for all the unedited, cant get in America anime and manga. Next, Im off to check out some state of the art electronic, compatible with over seas use. On my way to Don Quijote, Ill prob stop by those awesome vending machines and pick up some canned oden. At Don Quijote Ill take in a show by ABK48. I would finish my day with dinner at the Gundam cafe. And ill do this dressed as Soah from Bride of the Water God.

Would love to get the Vita game.

Haven't been to Akiba but I do plan to go there someday soon.

Akihabara Trip Planned

Days 1-3: after checking into the hotel, I'll spend these days more easy going. I'll check out the major sites but not go in yet, the places you always see in anime and games. Take a lot of photos, got both my cell phone ready as well as a video cam to record everything.
Most likely eat out at a maid cafe and have the maids go "kyun kyun Rito2Ru <3"
There's a Gundam Cafe too right? I mean there's like a cafe for everything. I have to find out.
Evening may spend out taking in the sights as well as the people still bustling about. Eat some authentic Japanese ramen.

Day 4-whenever I get bored (haha, yeah right): these days my wallet will cry. Will check out the manga and anime stores. Melonbooks and other areas of *cough cough* places to get certain doujins and special material lol. Hug pillows? You got it. Visual novels? Of course. Figures? If my wallet is willing. CDs and games that couldn't be localized? Definitely.
I kind of want to go to an idol or other concert but that would mean getting a ticket way in advance. I might do that if I could plan this really early on. I want to go to a meet and greet. Freak them out. Try not to get arrested or harassed by their fans lol.
AnimeKami willing (lol), I would love to go to a seiyuu event. I want an autograph from the people who've voiced my favorite characters.



I know there has to be someone cosplaying in those big headed Miku costumes. I want to meet one there and have silly adventures.

What I'll be wearing during all this time. A Naruto costume. No excuses.

I'm going during the summer. Gonna sweat buckets but it'll be worth it.

Oh man I have never been to Akihabara but I WILL go there before I die someday.
I would really love to just walk around for awhile and take in the whole environment with all the otaku goodness. Eventually I would start off visiting some of the anime shops such as animate, then make my way over to a book store like comic toranoana. Then I cant forget about hobby/figurine shops. I've also heard they have something called a game bar with rare games so that's a definite. I'd also plan on seeing a jpop performance. After all the anime/manga goodness I would want to visit some of the amazing electronics shops and from what i've heard you can find almost anything electronic wise . I would probably spend so much money between games/anime/manga/figurines but I would make sure I still have enough to visit a maid cafe, and possibly even a cat cafe because who doesn't want to play with cats in a cafe environment... it sounds like the cutest thing ever......

I was planning to go to Japan with my Japanese class during the summer of 2011, but didn't get to go because the agency handling the trip cancelled it due to the Tohoku earthquake in March that year and the nuclear radiation scare. Otherwise, I would have been able to go to Japan and visit Akihabara. Although, my Sensei at the time said that Akihabara wasn't all that, but that's probably just because she's not an otaku. I have not had the chance to visit since then.

Anyways, when I do visit Akihabara, I have to visit Kotobukiya and the Tales of Shop. I love the Tales of series and to think that there is a Tales of Shop on the second floor of Kotobukiya, a place any otaku needs to stop by. If I were to get anything, it would probably be figurines, and if they have it or wherever I can find it, I would get gunpla. Then there's Yodobashi-Akiba, a place full of electronics. I really like electronics and gadgets, but would probably just go window shopping. When in Japan, you gotta go to a cafe. In Akihabara, I would want to go to the Gundam Cafe and the AKB48 Cafe (since it's next door). I would also like to go to a cat cafe and obviously a maid cafe Even without a plan, just walking down the streets of Akihabara would be an experience and I'll probably find something interesting along the way. I'm not very into cosplaying myself, so I'll just be in regular clothes like jeans and a t-shirt. But I do enjoy watching others cosplay, and I'm sure I'll see some walking the streets.

Haven't been to Akiba..

I'd probably head to a game center and win some stuff from a UFO catcher, collect every flyer/pocket tissue handed out in the area, eat a beef bowl or two, go to a maid cafe, watch AKB48 or every street idol I see (strip one of them if possible), buy a Famicom and every game I can afford.

And... ZOMG! If -and when- I go to Akiba...
08:00-10:00 First of all, I'll probably get lost (since my Japanese is awful, but I already have the stereotypical otaku look, so I guess I'll be fine)...
10:00-10:30 Next, I'll jump into a Maid Cafe because nobody has ever called me goshujin sama -and I really doubt that anyone outside Akiba will do ever-...
10:30-12:30 I would probably need a friend to go with me, to help me carry the stuff I would by, of course...
12:30-14:00 I'm not too picky on food, but I would stay away from curry places... I. REALLY. DO. NOT. LIKE. CURRY.
14:30-16:00 I just need to drop all the stuff I'm carrying! I will not be carrying 20kg. of figurines all day!
16:00-18:00 Games! I know I need games... Dunno which ones, but that is irrelevant...
18:00-20:00 It's time for a movie/concert/whatever... Something in which I don't have to think or walk too much...
20:00-22:00 Karaoke, anyone?
22:00-00:00 Whos is giving service at this time!? Need to go home...

Before all of this happens, I would probably realize that I don't know schedules and I may not be able to even do half of that... But hey! You don't go to Akihabara with a plan... You just go and enjoy...

I went to Japan Back in 2009, it was a pretty good experience and i got to see and meet so many folks which i'm still in contact with even now . when I went to Akihabara me and my friends at the time went pretty much all over. we went to the gundam cafe quite often which was awesome each time i went cause they had these awesome Gundam cakes and cool drinks and the maids there were always had pleasant similes when they saw my crew and I. People forget that Akihabara is a regular city to despite the heavy anime culture around the city, there ae regular hangout bars and chill out lounges there which at 2 am everynight i was just drunk out my mind but It was always fun and safe. the bar culture in akihabara is real so definitely check it out if some of you get a chance and are of age to drink lol.
Theres also a shrine there called Kanda Myojin ( i think i spelled it right lol) though i only got to go there twice it the statues in that place were gorgeous, its was like looking at real gold lol. If I were give the chance to go back to Japan again I probably would go back akihabara and reconnect with people for sure
ps; for people wondering about maid cafes, some of them have door cover fee which they wont tell u until ur bill comes so be careful and keep and eye out for that, or just have a local with u so you'll know but other wise most maid cafes are fun (^_^)

If I went to Akiba, I'd probably hit up every and all the cafe's. It'd be sooo cute. Then I'd probably look for every light novel I had ever even heard of and buy them all. Do the same things with all my favorite mangas too. I'd also buy every piece of anime merch I saw from my most favorite animes. Other than that, I'd take LOADS of pictures and buy other really neat and kawaii electronics. Lol, it'd be a really great mess. <3
