Akihabara, commonly nicknamed Denki-gai or Electric Town, has long been Tokyos go-to location for all things electronic, with countless stores big and small dotting the streets since the end of World War II. A strip of tiny shops known as Radio Store was instrumental in establishing Akihabaras role in the city — the Allied occupants cracked down on black-market trading, and in 1949 a group of merchants decided to come together and sell their electronic wares in the same location. Radio Store has continued to operate ever since as a pioneer of the district. But after 64 years of business, Radio Store and its nine current occupants will close down tomorrow, Saturday November 30th. Its a casualty of Akihabaras shifting role in Tokyo, and the decreasing need for electronics DIY among most consumers.
