Akihabara place in Japanese kanji
Akihabara gained the nickname Akihabara Electric Town shortly after World War II for being a major shopping center for household electronic goods and the post-war black market. Nowadays, Akihabara is an otaku cultural center and a shopping district for computer goods, video games, anime, and manga. Icons from popular anime and manga are displayed prominently on the shops in the area, and numerous maid cafes can be found throughout the district. Some people view Akihabara and otaku culture in general in a negative light based on the male-oriented depictions in anime and manga.
