Free Saturday Akihabara Tours Offered to Foreigners

posted on by Egan Loo
The Tourism Industry Association of Japan is hosting "New Discovery of Akihabara," a free English tour of Tokyo's Akihabara shopping district, every Saturday until January 19, 2008. The tour was tested five times since November 2005, but it was only made a regular fixture last Saturday, July 7. The two-hour walk covers Radio Kaikan (Kotobukiya figures, K-Books dōjinshi/goods), Electric Town (electronics, duty-free shops), Tsukumo Robot Kingdom (robotics), and UDX Building (Tokyo Anime Center). Tokyo's Nakano Broadway complex is attempting to reach out to foreigners also. Source:
