How to Get There
In this section, we will show you how to get from JR Akihabara Station, to each of the above stores.
Most of Akihabara's Sofmap stores can be found on the main street, to get there, first pass through the Electric Town Exit ticket gates and then turn right.
Once you get out that exit, then turn left.
You'll then see the main street right ahead of you. As most of the Sofmap stores are on this street, head straight.
Once you reach the main street's crossroads, follow the pink arrow across the road to get to the Amusement Store (in the pink box labeled 2).
For the other stores, follow the blue arrow to the right.
This is where you'll end up. If you look up to the left, you'll see just how close the stores really are.
Once you get to the crossroads on Kandamyōjin-dori, the route splits again.
For Akiba☆Sofmap (3) and the Reuse General Store (4), follow the pink route. The box above is Akiba☆Sofmap, and the Reuse General Store can be found right next to it.
For the Main Store, follow the blue arrow straight ahead.
If you continue along the blue route, this is where you'll end up. If you cross the street, you'll reach the entrance of the Main Store, labelled above as (1). As you can see, it's just across the road from Akiba☆Sofmap (2) and the Reuse General Store (4).
