“AKB48 is a massively popular, manufactured J-pop group made up of girls, girls and more girls. Forty-eight of them in several troupes. They are so hot, they’ve created official spin-off clones in several other Asian countries. The phenomenon got its start here in Akihabara - that’s what AKB stands for. They have nothing to do with electronics and technology but everything to do with boyish fantasies. ”

“Finding a decent, reasonably priced place for lunch can be a chore for discerning Tokyo visitors, especially in touristy neighbourhoods like Asakusa. Aiming to attract particularly vegetarians and Muslim customers, Sekai Cafe opened in November 2014 just a stone's throw from the Kaminarimon. The fusion menu, which includes everything from sandwiches to steak, is put together with 100% halal ingredients, and those looking for meat-free options will find plenty to choose from as well. ”
