Next Distraction: Akihabara

After a brief perusal of Ochanomizu's musical wares, the Kanda River shows us the way to festive (noisy) Akihabara, a colorful (gaudy) town catering (pandering) to Tokyo's elusive (antisocial) masses of otaku (scum). Once again, Craig and I are pulled by forces unknown into a video arcade (Club Sega this time), where more of our money finds its way out of our pockets and into House of the Dead 4, Taiko no Tatsujin and Under Defeat.

Let me take this opportunity to make a recommendation. If you ever find yourself in the same room as a Taiko no Tatsujin 8 machine, do yourself a favor: drop in some money, choose the highest difficulty level and play the "Super Mario Brothers Theme." That's some good taiko.
