5. Akihabara Radio Center & Radio Kaikan
After WWII ended in 1945, the radio show has been one of the major pastimes in Japan. The radio center was built since there were a lot of people selling the parts of radio in Akihabara. Even after 70 years have passed, they still remain a unique and interesting place selling radio, wireless devices, and electronic parts. Now it gets more popular after the building was remodeled and eateries and anime goods shops opened
