We stopped by the famous Akihabara electronics district to see what all the fuss was about. We saw store after store with consumer electronics and appliances, and most stores were seven or eight floors tall. There were no surprises noticed in the area of digital cameras, they seemed to be the exact same models as in the United States. And the prices were much higher than in the United States, sometimes by as much as 50%. Needless to say we didn't buy any electronics.
