Of course, it stands to reason that here, of all places, you should be able to find lots of PC gear. And you can. Within only a couple of square kilometres of JR Akihabara station, there are about 80 PC shops, and while some are just offshoots of the main branch, or facsimiles just to give chains more overall floor space, most are independent.
While in Akihabara recently, we decided to take a look at some of these shops, specifically one of the major chain stores, Tsukumo. Owned by Japan’s largest electrical goods chain, Yamada Denki, Tsukumo has stores around Japan, but six in Akihabara alone. This gallery is a quick look at their main PC shop, as well as another branch down the road that had some second-hand gear. [This photo: by Flickr user
