Akihabara, the Promised Land
As they land their foot on Japan's nerd haven, It was at that moment they knew the tremendous power of geek culture. Our journey begun from "Radio Kaikan" , the central hub for anything geek-related.
Gotta Collect'em All
Explore the vast geek jungle of Akihabara to find dem rare Poke cards. As an outspoken geek, I can't be more proud to see kids embracing the path of a collector, a path that I wholeheratedly embrace.
Nintendo Switch Fled
Hunting for the legend, the myth, Nintendo Switch. Spoiler Alert...we failed. To compensate our tears of dissapointment, we ate "Niku-meshi", a unique dish not found in many guide books.
The Iron Fortress of Electronics
A visit to Akihabara (or Japan) isn't complete without a visit to Yodobashi Akihabara, arguably Japan's biggest electronic store! You can find anything here. except for a way out.

The best thing about today is to show Syennie and her family about the collector spirit that encapsulate Japanese mainstream audiences. It was a joy to see how they are both overwhelmed and amazed by Akihabara's peculiar culture. Syennie also told me a thing or two about how to become a great parents, which was very insightful.
