Patrick vs. Tokyo: Round 2

I now understand why people come back with a suitcase of toys and other crap when they visit.

Several of the G4 crew attending Tokyo Game Show this year have never been here before. During the one day we have no work obligations, we decided to pack a few days worth of nerd touring into an entire afternoon. That meant assaulting the famous Akihabara district, best known for its endless geek-centric shops. Wallet threat level was in the deep red when we entered this area. Not having a competent understanding of the currency doesn't help matters, either. 5,300 yen is what? Who cares!

Despite the abundant temptations, I kept myself on a budget. But splurge I did.

Here's what we found along the way.

The train map is less confusing than it looks, but it's daunting at first.

Brian and Dana try their hand at Beatmania. Dana gave up pretty quickly.

This shop contains six floors of toys. SIX FLOORS. It's dangerous.

Nothing like waking up to a little gunfire. Note: I did not buy this. ... Yet.

Stacks of airsoft guns next to stacks of toys next to stacks of games.

And our nerd adventuring comes to an end with a glorious brew. To Japan!
