On the 22nd I visited Akihabara (秋葉原) in Tokyo, a place that was famous for having many shops selling electric goods. The Tokyo Metro Guide introduced it in the following manner:

Here the most popular street is the Central Street (中央通り), there were shops along this street, mostly were either restaurants or shops selling electrical appliance. As there were a lot of home appliances available to choose, it had attracted a lot of overseas customers, one noticeable ethic group was the Chinese from the mainland. They carried suitcases to shop. Some shops were operated by mainlanders who were targeting at these customers. Some of these Chinese shops also sold brand name medicine or cosmetic that were famous among the mainlanders.
