Strictly for old-school electronics otaku, this two-storey warren of several dozen electronics stalls under the elevated railway is the original, still-beating heart of Akihabara. By old-school, we mean connectors, jacks, LEDs, switches, semiconductors and other components. It’s worth a peek as a cultural study; the easiest access is the narrow entrances under the tracks on Chūō-dōri.
