Day 2 – our first full day in Japan!
What other way to celebrate this momentous occasion on our first full 24 hours than to visit the Disneyland of Anime; Akihabara! (‘Akiba’ will be used from here on because typing out the long name is a pain).
Akiba was exactly what I had imagined it after seeing it depicted in countless anime and manga for 10+ years as well as seeing snippets of real Akiba from live footage from news and travel videos. Akiba was one of the most fascinating places to visit out of my time in Japan.
