Panorama TOKYO : Akihabara  

World-famous "Electric Town" Akihabara is one of ordinary towns we often visit. A neighbor has probably fed a flock of pigeons, and you can see them coming to roadside on the back street. The former site of the Central Wholesale Market is at the west side of JR Akihabara Station. Now it makes temporary utilization the station square and the parking lot there.

The exhibition of internet and computers held at the square in this summer. People given an explanation of products can go straight to the stores for their purchases. That's a good idea in "Electric Town".
