Today’s photo of the day comes from one of the best places to purchase retro video games and their related merchandise in Tokyo. The place I’m talking about is Super Potato located in Akihabara, Tokyo’s largest electronics district.
Looking for Final Fantasy III or perhaps a Super Mario Pocket Watch? Or perhaps that incredibly-rare-snes-game-only-you-played. You will find it at Super Potato, on one of their several floors. Each floor contains different types of games from Atari to the original Nintendo. Walls are covered in advertisements for old games and other random related material.
First you will have to find the place, it’s a tad difficult if it’s your first time in Japan, so much so that a video was made how to find it.
It is difficult to explain this one of a kind store , you have to experience it yourself. If you grew up gaming, then make sure to add this to your list of places to visit when you are exploring the urban jungle that is Tokyo.
More photos can be found on Flickr and make sure to subscribe to my journey in Japan. Now, if you don’t mind, I have to go take out a loan so I can go buy a sealed copy of the original Bubble Bobble on the NES.
