I planned to explore Akihabara when it suddenly started raining so I ran into this station for shelter. To my surprise, it was practically like a giant mall! As you enter this station, there is a store to the right that has several floors. I managed to explore that one store for nearly 2-3 hours and still didn't finish exploring. Not to mention they sold really affordable chocolates that make great souvenirs.
Extremely extensive and crowded. Be sure to arrive a little early to find your way around. Amazing station though, lots to offer before you even get into the neighborhood itself.
Very accessible and dont be scared to ask the people qorking there for directions. They are extremely helpful
