Akihabara is overloaded with variety of food. On the right side of Yodobashi, there is a line of outdoor stalls that feature a wide variety of crepes, waffles, sandwiches, takoyaki and smoothies. Elsewhere, you can find a store belonging to the popular café chains: Pronto, Beck’s, Tully’s, Doutor, Mister Donut and Starbucks to name a few. There’s two Denny’s locations, two McDonald’s (one sits above a Burger King), and places like the Hot Dog Café.
Still, if you have a hankering for mystery meat and a craft beer, I do recommend The Hot Dog Café. It is slightly pricy, but that’s to be expected in a prime tourist zone like Akihabara.
A district devoted to technological wizards, gamers and otaku is certain paradise for those with such interests. However, if you’re like me and prefer trees to electronics, then Akihabara might not be that astounding. But there’s a plethora of stores for window-shopping like M’s and Yodobashi to occupy your time, and you can experience the most innovative of Japanese technology without spending any coin.
