“Crafts that inspire”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

Little gems under the railway. These little craft stores are full of magic, from the wooden pieces, to masterful pieces of leather, and the quirky. The imaginative can spend an age, the rest will walk around and smile at the unusual. It isn't hard to find, just follow the railway line from the Akiharbira station. My recommendation is finish with a swing in the hammocks at the CafeAsan.

“Wonderfull gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2014

Walking through Akihabara can really fast lead to overexite your senses with all the merchandise, electronic shop or maid cafes.
Discovering 2k540 felt like heaven.
The calm, wonderfull design of this street and its artist give off a very special feeling and it's really hard not to kill your pocket in the numerous, beautiful shops.
I didn't even realise that I've spent my whole afternoon in the cafe asan. It was really relaxing!
