Ultra high-definition 4K Louis C.K. 8K SUPER COCK-A-SAURUS! 4K Video ey? Hmmm... *Catchy 80's Music* Akihabara, or Electric Town in Tokyo is regarded as the spiritual center of Japanese pop culture. With over 250 electronic shops of all shapes and sizes. Whether you're looking to spend your pocket money on retro video games or sexually provocative figurines, This is the place to do it. We're going to spend the day in Akihabara and discover some of the top things to do in this 5 THINGS TO DO IN AKIHABARA VIDEO Hidden down a backstreet in Akihabara is the greatest shop in the world. Err, second only to the build-a-bear workshop. To walk into this shop is to travel back two or three decades, to a simpler time. A time when handheld games consoles looked like bricks. At Super Potato which is genuinely the name of the shop, you could buy just about any video games console ever made. Best of all, many of them look like they could have rolled off the assembly line last Tuesday. Look at this, we've got loads of Nintendo's Super Famicoms. Look at the condition! It looks almost brand-new! ¥3,480. Comes with one controller. Whole stack of them. Before I had any console ever, this was the first thing I had. The Gameboy. It's the same size as the iPhone but, look at the thickness. That's amazing. Little bit discolored, not gonna lie. And it's quite expensive. ¥8400. Expensive, expensive, yeah it's pretty expensive. So depending on the condition of the Gameboy, the price is quite different so this one has a little mark on it, apparently, so it's ¥2000 cheaper. So, I quite want to get one. I spend so many hours on this in the back of the car or when we're going places, playing it. God bless the Gameboy. Found “Golden Eye.” My first games console was Nintendo 64 and this was the first game that I'd ever played, “Golden Eye.” I played “Golden Eye” earlier in this year for the first time in like 15 years. It doesn't hold up. It just looks like a big blocky mess but the memories still live on. I can't help but feel some of the magic thats been lost by downloading video games just off the internet. These are made, these are so cool. Like the VHS tapes, they're so perfectly wrapped and the artwork on the box. The artwork is half the fun. What's your favorite game Natsuki? Nostalgic, my time very hard, different, don't clear. What year was this game? Do you remember? Junior high school, game center 1990. As well as being able to spend your hard-earned credit card on nostalgic childhood games consoles, you can even play retro arcade video games upstairs in a dimly lit room. I won't lie, most of these games are a little bit before my time so I don't really know what they are. Do you remember these? Yeah, a high school style. Gamers can purchase snacks and drinks in the small shop, and it was not long before Natsuki settled down for a round of Street Fighter. My favorite thing about Street Fighter was always the background. This is supposed to be China, and I just love the people in the background doing the washing, watching the fight and casually going on. That's what China looks like. Whilst Akihabara is Japan's pop culture capital today, it got its nickname of “Electric Town” after the Second World War when the area was well known for its black market, where people could pick up cheap electronics. In particular, radios. As the sixties and seventies rolled around, the district became filled with shops selling TVs and records. And then in the 1980s came the arcade games. Despite its new pop culture image, the neighborhood is still true to its roots with an abundance of independent street vendors still selling electronic goods to this day. Just about every manner of electronic item you'd ever want. And once again, it's not long before something catches Natsuki's eye. Natsuki is err is going to buy some lights. Which? Where's the difference? This one looks better. Cool. My room, illumination. Your room, illumination? Bedroom? Shop? Window side. Ahh okay for the beauty salon Natsuki owns a beauty salon. Oo white? Ah blue. Blue. Shopping for lights is hungry business and whilst there's no shortage of restaurants in Akihabara, why not try something a little bit unique while you're here? “Yarou Ramen” is a popular ramen joint just off another back street in Akihabara, famous for their ludicrous portions that resemble mountains with bowls overflowing with over a kilogram of food. Natsuke and I decided to challenge each other to see who could finish the bowl the fastest. A challenge so large we dedicated an entire separate video to it, which you can find in the description box below. Just make sure you make it to the end of the video where you can witness Natsuki's questionably good magic show. And even if you don't want your stomach devastated by monster ramen, they do sell normal human sized portions of ramen as well. It is definitely worth checking out. It wouldn't be a trip to Akihabara without seeing the meticulously crafted figurines. And Kotobukiya is the closest thing to geek heaven with five floors crammed with everything from Star Wars and Marvel merchandise to anime and manga characters. And when it comes to figurines, our friend Shiori, who's secretly been hiding behind the camera until now, is a huge fan. You don't like figurines? No. It's so creepy. Creepy? It's just like real Japanese..I've never seen such women with those huge boobs..Look at that! Do you like them? Err not really my thing. Nice quality. Yeah, I do appreciate the craftsmanship. The craftsmanship is pretty awesome. You don't want one for your birthday? Haha noo. How much? About ¥10,000! Wow. No thank you~But then again, You're not really the target market are you? You're not really the customer. Natsuki's the target market. You want to buy? Umm no. Oh my god. Apparently, 86 stormtroopers cost ¥645,000. What's that? $6,500? Oh my god. $6,500 for 86 storm troopers. You should buy all the figurines. Put them around your beauty salon. Yeah well, I do like star wars. I'm not like super super fan but I do really like it. What character do you want? Him, this is Darth Sidious, the Emperor. He's a really nice man. Sitting man. He's a sitting man. That's what he does. He's the Emperor so he just sits, doesn't he? I must admit, I prefer the original standard lightsaber, not a fan of that. Heavy? It is quite heavy. Ohh I could probably kill you with this, I said that quite casually but there you go. Oh nice sound! Good sound. If you want to leave Akihabara with some kind of figurine but don't have $50 to spend, for about $5, there's a much cheaper alternative just around the corner. Gachapon are capsule toys that you can buy from vending machines throughout the country. And whilst the concept can be found in countries around the world, in Japan, the toys are typically much higher quality modeled with greater detail and slightly pricier. Such is their quality that I've met numorous foreigners living in Japan who export them to collectors around the world for a tiny profit. By Akihabara, you can find entire stores stuffed with hundreds of Gachapon vending machines. Under 18. So Shiori is going to buy one now and it's not for underage teens. I didn't choose this one. Right, Natsuki chose it. I might actually have to blow this out. She's good okay. You want this one. Oh it's hard to turn, okay I got it. I think, I think I got what I want! Ohhh it's err thing. It's a woman who's sleeping. Sleeping type on the bed. Sexy sleeping type. Am I going to have to blow it out? Yeah, where's her head? She's legs up. She's what? Leg is up. Yaayyy. Finished making it. Nice color, purple. Yes nice hair color. Comes with a mat? Oh my god. Yeah, she's happy now lying down on her mat. Relax woman. *Singing* Is that a song? Have you just made that up? *Resumes singing* Duran Duran! No, it's not Duran Duran, it's Frankie Goes to Hollywood! So, that was five things to do in Akihabara. If there's somewhere in Akihabara you want to visit or you recommend, let us know in the comments section below but for now guys. We hope you've enjoyed this program. In next week's show, “Is this the end for Mario? Can Nintendo survive fierce competition from Sega in the coming decade? We don't think so. We'll also be looking at why Apple computers have been going from strength to strength since the departure of erratic founder Steven Jobs who has gone on to squander his wealth on Pixar computers, the company based in the southern Cisco Bay area.
