Where to buy them
By and far the most popular Japanese district
for gadgets and electronic toys is Akihabara, known as Tokyo’s
Electric Town. For people who want to buy their electronic
goodies at cheaper prices, this is the way to go, with literally
thousands of choices besides. For foreigners, they are encouraged
to bring their passports with a valid visa so they can be eligible
for special duty free prices.
As most of the staff in the shops
is capable of speaking English and other languages, communication
is not a problem. Dollars and Euros are accepted, although
buyers are also encouraged to make use of their credit cards.
