Technology, manga, anime, video game and most other type of geeks rejoice in the streets of Akihabara given its plentifulness of arcades, video game stores, manga, electronic shops and Maid Cafes.
The waitresses of a Maid Cafe, mostly teenage girls, wear cosplay dresses and call their customers, mostly men, “Master”. At the one I went to they performed a series of magic tricks, sang and danced all in style of a Japanese anime. While inside, they only let me take a photo of the ice cream.
From Akihabara I walked north to Ueno, to visit the Ueno park and the Ueno Toshogu Shrine. From there I went to Ameyoko, short for “Ameya Yokocho” which means "Candy Store Alley".
Several haging o-makuji. O-makuji is a a little piece of paper that tells your fortune. When the prediction is bad, you hang it by the shrine as a way of delaying that bad fortune from happening.
