In the leisure island of Odaiba, placed between two shopping malls lies an amazing indoor amusement park, Tokyo Joypolis. Love interactive videogames and simulators? Then let me introduce you the many attractions of the indoor amusement park by Sega, and the reasons why you don’t have to miss the chance to enter.
I used to live in Tokyo for the past 2 years, and more precisely, I had just around the corner the Square Enix HQ, and besides the building, there is the Square Enix fans sanctuary, Artnia.
When there was not so much to do on a lazy day in Tokyo, I used to visit Akihabara, the Electric Town of Tokyo. Many times my friends from overseas asked for me to send them some goods or manga related merchandise, so Akihabara was the first place to come to mind. In my case, I went there for the videogames. But my favourite part are the game centres, I could spend there all my day trying the latest games.
Why Electric Town, is it because all of the videogames, computer, and electronic devices shopping heaven? In part, yes. Nowadays, is better known by being the “otaku heaven” or mostly the place in Tokyo where you can find anything related to Anime, Manga, Merchandise and anything around it, also place for Maid Cafés all along the district amongst other particular shops. I’ll explain on this post why was it given the name of Electric Town.
