The Akihabara Electric Town Spring Campaign starts this friday, 3/13, and continues through April 5th!


So just what kind of festival is it?  A shopping one!  If you spend ¥5,000 at one of the participating stores, you’ll be given a postcard that you can send in to be entered to win one of 200 ¥10,000 gift certificates.  But wait, there’s more (I had to)!  Participating stores will also be giving out hand towels to everyone who spends over ¥5,000 until they run out.

etf2But wait, there’s still more!   If you shop at one of the participating stores you can also get some tissues with a coupon for 10% off weekday or 5% off weekends when you eat at restaurant Niku no Bansei (mmmmm, succulent meats!) and ¥1,000 off when you spend ¥3,000 or more at suit shop Aoki.  Not a bad deal, I dare say.

Check out this map to see which shops (both the orange and blue ones) are participating and for other useful Akiba info.
