  • "Bro, you really need to start filming in 4K Ultra High-definition video!"

  • 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.

  • FoundGolden Eye.” My first games console was Nintendo 64 and this was the first game

  • that I'd ever played, “Golden Eye.” I playedGolden Eyeearlier 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 ofElectric

  • Townafter 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 Ramenis 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.
