Akihabara, where the geeks, gamers and anime lovers in town hang out. Known as the "Electric Town", people can find cheap electronic items to carry home from iMac's knock-off to the colorful LED lights.




In Akihabara, there are few maid cafes around and the waitresses dress up as these fancy characters from anime like this one below (she distributed the flyers to all passers-by)


I find it hard to get their close-up and profile pictures since they were aware of any foreigner's cameras to snap them in their wacky costumes. They will turn away from you even though you have been pretending like the local and not going to switch the camera on. These maids were giving me the cold shoulder. Not cool sista.
