A small warren of electronic booths under the rail tracks that was the gathering point of the wireless radio technicians who put their skills to use repairing radios from the odds and ends that could be salvaged in the commodity-scare post-war years. While the products on sale might have advanced, the narrow tunnels of the Radio Center haven’t changed all that much. Don’t miss the steps to the second floor where you can find all manner of “retro” electronic products, from Betamax players to the first Sony Walkman and Gameboys. A real treat for the gadget-lovers among us and one of Akihabara’s best sightseeing spots.
