Electronic, Manga, figurines and maid cafe
Akihabara Station is often the gateway to the neighborhood of the same name known for its electronic, anime, manga, figurine stores and maid cafe.
On the first floor are the Yamanote and Keihin-Tohoku platforms (Ueno, Omiya, Yokohama) and the Chuo Sobu (Shinjuku, Funabashi and Chiba) platforms with a "Local" service train are on the second floor.
In the basement, the station is the terminus of the Tsukuba Express line (for Chiba, Saitama, Chiyoda, Tsukuba).
The subway ( Hibiya line, exit 3) is just outside the station with Showa_Dori Exit. To reach the "electric city" follow the signs "Akihabara Electric Town Exit" and turn left.
Finally, if you are doing some shopping in the ATRE shopping center adjacent to the train station, a direct connection to the third floor allows access to the platforms.
With the numerous staircases between the levels it is easy to change platforms following the signage indicating the number of the dock and the destination that one wishes to reach.
As the panels are based on the color of the line it will be easier if you know the color of your line.
