I used to visit Akihabara from time to time, a place once thought to sell all kinds of consumer electronics, just like its image as an "electronics city. It was not to buy home appliances or camera equipment, but to touch the "Porsche of the PC world," the Macintosh. At that time, the Apple Macintosh was so expensive that I could not afford it, and this was before the APPLE STORE. It is unthinkable today, but I used to go all the way to Akihabara just to touch and feel the actual products.

Today, Akihabara has a beautiful complex of buildings in front of the station, creating the atmosphere of an office district and a mecca for subcultures. The city has changed with the times. Even the Sobu Line trains that run on the railroad bridge over the Kanda River, which seem to have an unshakable presence, could change over time. Manseibashi Station, located near Akihabara Station, used to be a prosperous terminus, but now even the station has disappeared. The passage of time is frightening.
