  • Close by akihabara Station. It has very cold shops and some nice cafés. Although prices are quite high here.
  • Small market sporting a wide variety of locally made products, ranging from clothes to wooden utensils. Also, neat small coffee shop. Definitely worth a visit for people with an interest into seeing a more hipster side of Tokyo. (Also, there are toilets with a waste basket. That may seem like small details, but if you are a tourist, chances are you've been looking for both for the last hour and a half.)
  • Officially known as "2k540 Aki-Oka Artisan," this is a complex of galleries, boutiques and workshops for artisans of both traditional and modern crafts. Lined up under the JR railroad tracks are some two dozen shops selling (and often making on-premises) leather goods and jewelry, hats and umbrellas, wooden crafts, ceramics, fabrics and toys.
  • Cute and quiet little area under the train line with artisan boutiques lining the street. Great place to explore. Akihabara's hidden gem. Not busy with tourists, more of a place for locals.
  • A favourite of tourists and locals alike. One-of-a-kind traditional souvenirs can be be found in these quaint boutiques.
