I'd listten to the radio
waitin' for my favorite songs.............(Yesterday Once More)
Maid cafe, anime, game, and otaku good shops....
Akihabara is changing.
But you can still see the nostalgic scenery of akihabara electric town.
Along the narrow path between old buildings, under the railroad overpath,
there are many of narrow electric part shops.
I think it is the original scenery of akihabara electric town.
I remember when I was a boy, I went to there to find a part of the radio.
So those sceneries take me back to my boyhood.
But just now, I have no time to be in nostalgic mood.
Because, tomorrow, I must go to nishi-ginza for treasure hunting!!
I will be waitting for you there tomorrow!!
