Best English-speaking otaku Christmas gift ever: Akihabara Map

12:23 PM on 12.26.2007 // Dale North

The fine blog Akihabara Channel has offered up what they call Akihabara Map ver 1.10. What a wonderful Christmas gift!

This isn't your dad's map; it plots otaku points of interest in English so visitors to the Holy Land can find exactly what they're looking for. If you're looking for doujin, simply hit the doujin button to see a list of locations on the right of the map. Click any one of these locations to find your store. There's listings for games, figures, a/v, arcades, books, retro, and much more. 

They didn't forget that otaku have to eat some time. We noticed that all of the konbini and McDonald's locatoins are also marked.

Sure, finding addresses in this otaku hotspot can be a bitch, but having access to this excellent map will help you on your way.
