As well as my Yamanote full loop yesterday, I also had a great time strolling around my spiritual home!
Sunday is a great day to visit Akiba, as the main street is closed to vehicles from 1pm to 6pm(5pm Oct – Mar).
Headed over to Super Potato for some retro gaming goodness!
Arcade time for a bit of Gyrozetter, Gundam Extreme Vs and Senjo no Kizuna!
Replay on the Pilot Terminal screen, you’ll see I’m not even slightly pointing in the right direction to hit that Zaku, I got there in the end though but my meister skills need work 🙂
NHK have this little area set up to showcase “Super Hi-Vision” and will be showing events from the London 2012 Olympics
Today though, it was a documentary on the construction of Tokyo Sky tree, still very interesting.
Another retro gaming store.
Asobit City for Gunpla browsing!
Justice Gundam is the latest Real-Grade release, came out on the 28th.
Completed Gunpla on display.
Modified M1 Astray kits, there were lots of these – really impressive work!
Game card trading shop in the Yellow Submarine building, where I’ll be trading in my Gyrozetter doubles!
Akiba_Square in the UDX building, there was an event on, but it was ticket only.
Gundam Cafe, might be going here on my birthday 🙂
And of course, Yodobashi Camera, played around with a massive Wacom screen/tablet I will never be able to afford.
That was my lazy Sunday in Akiba, I didn’t really buy anything, but I still had an awesome time!
