Nostalgic Akiba

What do you remind from the word “Akiba (Akihabara)”?
Newest electric things? High spec Computers? Tons of games? Geeky girls’ figure? Maid-cafe?

All of these are right, and there’s some old style small shops are still open.
The shops were established maybe… 30 or more years ago.
Almost of these are electric specialty shop. Some has rare Showa parts, some has latest parts.

Feels like lost in time and place, or playing in imaginary Kowloon.

Interesting, I didn’t know about this part of Akihabara. It does seems lost when I think of the crowded streets of there.
