Akihabara, or “Akiba” as it´s sometimes being called, over the years slowly turned out to be Tokyo´s epicentre of anime subculture. The commonly used and signposted term “Electric Town” is a relic of the time where Akihabara used to be the place to go if you needed any up-to-date electric products, no matter if VHS recorders or computers. Of course you can still shop for laptops or cameras over here.
I´ve made this video on the World Trade Center observation platform. The Roppongi Sky Deck and the Tokyo Tower will also offer a breathtaking view of this district.
The TV Tower in the city centre is one of Nagoya´s most popular landmarks.
The beach of Kamakura, located conveniently only around 1 hour by train from Tokyo, is definitely worth a visit at any season. In springtime (March/April), the beach may look almost deserted, whereas in the summertime countless surfers, beachvolleyball players and sun worshipers populate this place until October. There are also several festivals and events being held directly at the beach. Besides, Kamakura has a lot more to offer: with its temples and shrines, the giant Daibutsu (buddha) statue and even an almost magical bamboo forest it is one of the recommended sightseeing spots nearby Tokyo.
