As I mentioned in a previous post, my husband and I took a trip to Japan in 2008. I promised to share more of this adventure. In this post, I am sharing some of the anime and manga related attractions and shops in Akihabara.

    Akihabara was cool! I remember seeing Aibo, and being awed. Also, the first tiny MP3 players (when they hadn’t made it much to Australia yet). I’m sure I would have been even more fascinated if I’d been into gaming more then.
