A look @ neon vibrant Akihabara at night... hmmm... actually most of the hobby shops were closed after 9pm. Some of the shops that extended operation would be UFO catcher, game arcade and Pachinko slot. It's was spring in March so the temperature is between 7 - 13 degree Celsius. Can be pretty cold for someone like me for topical region and felt even colder when the wind blown towards me. If you happened to be at Akihabara, it's good to take UDX building as reference point as it just in front of the train station (don't forget to take phamplets at the train station, with map that marked out the location of hobby shops), like in the heart of the shopping belt. Looking from UDX, you can easily locate Yodabashi -Akiba (There, you can find the largest selection of Gunpla). You can also see Gundam cafe and AKB48 cafe, which are just side by side.
