Back in Tokyo, we started to explore the different areas of the city. Our first stop was Akihabara - known as the electronics district. There were streets of manga/anime shops (often a whole shop would be specifically for a particular series), huge anime posters plastered over buildings, model shops and arcades.

Also, we could not exactly figure out how to lock the front door (it locks and unlocks with a key and a remote) and I was scared someone was going to break in (mind you the place we are staying is in a quiet and really safe neighborhood.)
