Yes, been there quite a few times. It's like one of the holdouts stores.
I don't like what Akihabara has changed into in recent years. I used  
to love rummaging in the seemingly endless rows of old electronic junk  
shops that used to be there...that was 10+ years ago now, and nearly  
all have gone replaced with some sort of CosPlay, Manga porn shop or  
Maid Cafe. So sad.

Last time I was there I did see a couple of Japanese Vectrex machines  
for about 40000yen each, a bunch of Japanese console stuff (Super  
Famicom etc), but nothing so interesting for me.
