Tokyo’s iconic Electric Town has made a name for itself as the city’s anime, gaming and otaku cultural center. Akihabara may be home to plenty of maid cafés and quirky eateries, but the restaurant scene mainly has a reputation for comfort food and delicious yoshoku – Western food with a distinctive Japanese twist. These are Akihabara’s best restaurants.
