It is not a surprise that there are a lot of PC related stores in the Electric Town. Only around the station, there are around 70 stores! Here you can buy whole PC sets, parts, and various equipment.
We went to Akihabara and found a few interesting shops to introduce you.
Yodobashi Multimedia Akiba!
Yodobashi Multimedia Akiba is near Showa-dori and Central Gate exit. It is a flag store of a major electronic and home appliance chain retail.
You can find PC and PC peripherals on the 2nd floor. It seems they have a bigger offer comparing to the other stores we visited. Also, there are more employees ready to assist you in case you have any questions
As you can see from the pictures, they have a lot of different equipment.
Since it is very close to the station and its inventory is surprisingly large, we recommend you take some time to check it out.
Chuo-dori, the main street in the Electric town, is close to Electric town exit. Even when it is crowded, you will be able to notice one big PC store sticking out.
Softmap has a few different shops in Akihabara: the main store, a second-hand, and a repair shop. The biggest one is the main store in Chuo street, where you can spend your whole afternoon.
A bit further away
There are many more shops just a street away from Chuo-dori.
These stores are not as big as the ones in Chuo-dori. However, many well-known companies have smaller stores specializing in selling different products all around Electric town.
It is the best to choose the stores according to your needs because it is nearly impossible to visit every single one of them.
