Pull out those discount cards, lads!
In the latest version of its “In Pictures” photo gallery feature, the BBC News website takes us on a shopping tour of Tokyo’s world-famous otaku paradise, Akihabara.
Many of the featured items aren’t new, but I always get a kick out of seeing these delightful little oddities. Here’s my pick of the lot:
– A USB-powered microscope
– A necktie with a built-in cooling fan (also USB-powered)
– Tinned pasta (best eaten with tinned bread!)
