About Akihabara
Akihabara is a geek's paradise. In postwar Japan, high economic growth has made Akihabara the world's leading electric street, lined with various shops dealing in both electronic hardware and software. In recent years, many pop culture-type shops have sprung up, and Akihabara has evolved into a world renowned tourist destination.

The next TokyoDemoFest will be held in this largest geek city in the world.
