The afternoon of day 2 of our trip to Tokyo was spent watching the Sumo tournament, but after the sun set, we headed off to explore a bit more of the amazing city.
Our first stop was the gamer/manga/anime neighborhood of Akihabara. Whenever I think of Tokyo, this is the area I think of the most. Think bright lights, maid cafes, comic book stores, DVD rooms, arcades, and a dizzying array of colors. We also went to a 7 story sex shop that’s just as crazy as you’d imagine a 7 story sex shop in Tokyo would be.
After exploring Akihabara and seeing enough manga to last a lifetime, we went to Shinjuku, where we went bar hopping in one of the coolest places in the entire world (next post!)
