Akihabara, for those who don't know, is basically Geek Heaven. It's a neighborhood in Tokyo where all kinds of electronic goodies can be found, and a top destination for those interested in tech. Having never visited Akihabara, I made do with the videos shot by Akihabara News. They make useful viewing if you're preparing for your first visit by giving tips on what to do and what tourist traps to avoid. For those who haven't made the pilgramage, they make good viewing for a vicarious thrill.
Viewing the video directly is a little slow so I recommend you download the videos direct or via Bittorrent.
