In this podcast episode your intrepid Cheapos venture into the deepest darkest depths of Akihabara. With their guide Aaron Baggett, Cheapo extraordinaire and author of our book “A Cheapo’s Guide To Akihabara“, hear them dodge maids, escape the clutches of full size dolls and run in shock from the rather sketchy moe posters plastered just about everywhere.

Akihabara is the Otaku mecca of the universe, with electronics, games and manga making up the mainstay of shopping. It’s most definitely a key pin on the “Weird Japan” map.
