Tokyo's electronic wonderland has become world-renowned. In a
small area near Chuo-dori Avenue, west of Akihabara Station, are
clustered more than 250 electrical appliance and electronics shops,
many of them now dealing in computer hardware and software, where
expert staff can answer queries and visitors can browse through the
showrooms of major manufacturers. There are duty-free shops and
various events to draw attention. The suburb has been specialising
in electrical equipment since the 1940s and is now regarded as the
world's biggest and best electrical equipment enclave.
