Laox in Aki
That is shut down now..
They still are many shops selling heaters etc for cookers, heat guns etc.
The back street areas of Akihabara are as good as ever, OK, the main street and around the station is more 'touristic'
Ginza is within walking distance from Aki... Guys I worked with loved the hostess clubs there... the girls poor whiskey, light your cigar pick lint off your jacket and are really really attentive, while you talk business ... I think we could put it under expenses..
In Hong Kong Golden Square Palace had declined quite a bit when I worked in 1 IFC above Hong Kong station (I lived near causeway bay) there but the basement in Golden Square was the first place I would head...
In Singapore forget SimLim square... its extremely touristy and sells mostly rubbish... Sim Lim Tower however ... I can walk in to certain shops in the basement and source Russian military ICs and on the top floor there is a junk shop from all kinds of industrial control stuff from everytime they close down a factory, its like heaven digging through that... Funan plaza is not bad for consumer/comodity items and there is a bookshop that sells only computer books and nothing else..
