Just in case you need more evidence that Toyko is a special city, a store in Akihabara called Super Potato can be exhibit #7632.
Super Potato is an awe-inspiring, multi-level shrine to classic video games. It’s amazing.
The first two levels? Game after game after game for every game system you can think of (and some that you probably can’t), not to mention the systems themselves.
And then there’s the toys, figurines, clothing, and any manner of game-related ephemera.
As if that wasn’t enough, on the third floor there’s an old school arcade, with games like Street Fighter 2, 1941, and Metal Slug. It’s nuts.
I think I need to start learning Japanese, because I’m pretty sure I have to live in Japan now. I need to be somewhere a place like this can exist, and I just can’t imagine Super Potato being able to thrive in any other city in the world.
