This is the Akihibira district, pretty much all the buildings in these images are Hobby shops, …… ……….. often each floor is dedicated to a specific hobby….. …… such as this one filled with row after row of plastic car kits, ……. or this one with every possible thing for the die cast car collectors. If you are headed to Akihabira, plan on being there all day, because there's more than just one block of multi storied buildings to cover. There's also hundreds of specialist market stall winding like snakes through the lanes and back streets. Here's but one of many that specialises in hand tools and machines for small scale manufacturing or model building. This ready to go, fully functional Dart Vader outfit was a steal at only $3,000, but it did include a device to make you sound just like James Earl Jones in the Starwars movies.
