Abstract

We survey on the visitors shop-around behaviors and vertical floor use in Akihabara area where various kinds of specialty shops are located.

Junk Street and Central Street constitute the center of Akihabara area. 2) There are various kinds of hobby shops along Central Street. On the other hand, there are a lot of PC shops, electronic-parts shops, and various types of restaurants including 'maid cafe' along Junk Street. 3) The age bracket affects the category of shops which visitors shop-around.
