Looking for otaku friends in Tokyo
I'm moving to Tokyo in October to start studying Japanese and looking for Otaku friends in Tokyo to befriend.

You can find them everywhere in Akihabara.

And what is Akihabara?

AKIHABARA is a town in Tokyo. Just two stop from TOKYO station on JR.

AKIHABARA had been town of electronic parts shops and then turned to town of PC shops. WIth these PC culture, Many kind of WOTAKU gathered there like as game wotaku, PC wotaku and sub-culture wotaku.

Now, AKIHABARA is town of figures, games, maid cafe and "idles".

You can see here how crazy AKIHABARA is

Akihabara is a fun place, but it is now overrun with tourists from China, America, and Europe. I used to live near Akihabara, and enjoyed shopping in the countless stores there and in Ameyoko. The PC I am using now was built from parts I bought in Akihabara.

You won't find much in the way of good shopping deals there (Japanese goods are cheaper in America and Europe than they are in Japan), but you will see a lot of interesting people. The maid cafes are overrated, the food is worse than Denny's, and costs twice as much. Luckily Hooter's now has restaurants in Tokyo, and Hooter's girls are easier on the eyes than the maids in Akihabara (and won't try to hide if you want to take a photo).

If you are a big otaku fan, you can find the AKB 48 cafe next to the station, it's near the Gundam cafe.

Personally, I am a music fan, and guitar player, and have a lot more fun shopping around the music stores in Ochanomizu. From Akihabara, Ochanomizu is only 10 or 15 minutes walk.

There were some music instruments store in AKIHABARA like as LAOX music shop which had gone.

Recycle shop "hardoff" has a musical instruments shop in AKIHABARA now. You will find high-class used guitars there.
