Honestly worth it. Akiba Don Quijote is the stuff of legend, the stores are as amazing as you want though not the cheapest. My top pick are the hobby stores but the hidden gem is the Magikarp (Koikingu for purists) Taiyaki fairly close to the station. So tasty I went back for two more the next day and just feels like you're living in the pokemon world, it's great. Doesn't stay open as late as you'd think though, from memory it kind of all shuts down by 8pm.
