After the semester in Korea was over, all my friends either went back to their countries or decided to travel through more tropical lands, like islands and stuff. I'm not a big fan of the sun or the beach so my path took me to a different place, so far my favorite place in the world: Tokyo. It's the best city I've ever been in. I love it so much. 

For the first day, I went to Akihabara, a.k.a. "The Electric Town", because my hostel was 25 minutes away by walking. Akihabara is pretty strange, I must admit, it's the technologic district mixed with anime, arcade games and people that dress like their favorite anime/manga characters. It's also the home of the "maid café", coffee houses where the waitresses are dressed like french maids. I didn't go to one, it was a bit much for me, but some friends from the hostel did and they said that it was only fun while being drunk, haha. 

Akihabara is filled with video game stores and famous Japanese anime characters. They're even on the buildings, it's really weird but cool at the same time. I also found a great interior design shop near the river (pictured above) and discovered a more quiet side of the hectic anime district. Unfortunately, I ended up eating at the most average place, I don't even remember the name, and that was the low of the night. Overall, it was a great first day and I truly enjoyed (from a cultural, anthropologic, point of view) visiting Akihabara.

// Después de terminar el semestre en Korea, todos mis amigos o regresaban a casa o decidieron viajar hacia tierras más tropicales, como islas y así. Yo no soy muy fan del sol o la playa así que mi camino me llevó a un lugar diferente, hasta ahora mi lugar favorito en todo el mundo: Tokyo. Es la mejor ciudad en la que he estado, la amo mucho.

Para el primer día, fui a Akihabara, también conocido como "El pueblo eléctrico", porque mi hostal estaba a 25 minutos (caminando) de ahí. Akihabara es extraño, debo admitir, es el distrito tecnológico mezclado con anime, arcadias y gente que se viste como sus personajes favoritos de anime/manga. Es también el hogar de los "maid café", cafeterías donde las meseras están vestidas como mucamas francesas. No fui a uno, era mucho para mí, pero algunos amigos del hostal sí y dijeron que sólo es divertido si estás borracho, jaja.

Akihabara está lleno de tiendas de video juegos y personajes famosos de anime japonés. Hasta los ponen en los edificios, es súper raro pero padre al mismo tiempo. También encontré una tienda de diseño interior bien padre cerca del río (mostrado arriba) y descubrí un lado más calmado del caótico distrito de anime. Desafortunadamente, terminé comiendo en lugar súper equis, ni recuerdo el nombre, y esa fue la parte baja de la noche. En general, fue un gran primer día y en serio disfruté (desde un punto de vista cultural y antropológico) visitar Akihabara.
This concludes day 1 but there's more to come, stay tuned.
Love always,
