Volks Akihabara Hobby Tengoku



New openings


Opened in November 2014, this 'hobby paradise' spreads out over a total of eight storeys, carrying model vehicles, figurines, character-themed paraphernalia, nerdy Akihabara souvenirs and much, much more. Those in the know can spend all day here without even pushing it, while anyone less than enamoured with otaku culture will be looking for the door in minutes. Hardcore collectors will want to check out the rentable shelves, on which fellow enthusiasts put their old stuff up for sale.


1-15-4 Sotokanda, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo

Transport Akihabara Station (Yamanote, Keihin-Tohoku, Sobu, Hibiya, Tsukuba Express lines)

Open Mon-Fri 11am-8pm, Sat-Sun & holidays 10am-8pm
