5 of the best geek holidays
If you’re a true gadget hound, a visit to Tokyo’s Akihabara district will have your tail wagging and your tongue lolling out. Sometimes called “Electric Town”, it’s packed with electronics stores selling every conceivable tech product – and some that are barely conceivable (especially in the eye-opening realm of “erotica”). Shop assistants generally speak good English, and are incredibly helpful.
Tokyo is also well-furnished in the arcade department. If you want to try the latest games, visit the three-storey Taito Hey in Akihabara. Or if you prefer something a little more “real”, Shooting Bar EA lets you quaff beers while popping off shots down a BB gun range.
