ASK ANY LOCAL in Akihabara and they can easily point at the building for you. Standing with 15 floors that zoom up to the sky when you crane your head up for a glimpse, the Akihabara UBX or Urban Development X is one of the high rise buildings that will greet you immediately after a few minute- (if not second-) walk from the Akihabara Station. The Akihabara UBX is a multi-purpose complex that houses several other establishments like restaurants and food shops, souvenir shops, a gallery, an open college, a guest room, theater and event spaces, among others.
Akihabara UBX encourages the influx of economic activities in Tokyo’s Otaku Epicenter.
Since its operation in 2006, the establishment has contributed a lot to the dynamic change in the area, encouraging and generating more income in the place. Thus, this proves that the influx of economic activities is greatly possible in the Tokyo’s Otaku Epicenter. They provide a brochure for their floor and shops guide with all the profile and information of each shop and restaurant; one side is written in Japanese, while the other one proves the establishment as foreigner-friendly, as it is written and translated into three languages – English, Chinese and Korean.

The Akihabara Station is accessible via the JR Chuo-Sobu Line, the JR Keihin Tohoku Line, JR Yamanote Line, the Toei Subway-Shinjuku Line and the Tsukuba Express. From the Tokyo International Airport in Haneda, it is also possible to take the Limousine Bus that will take you directly to the place. And if you prefer to go there on a private vehicle, their huge parking spaces are more than enough to accommodate you and your automobile. Provided that you dine in or purchase something from one of the Akiba-Ichi stores with a minimum worth of 3,000 yen, you will get a UDX parking coupon good for an hour of parking. Except in cases where a Sunday falls on a consecutive holiday, Akihabara UDX operates daily, from Sundays to Saturdays and even in most holidays, from 11:00 am to 11:00 pm. However, operation of tenant shops in the building also differs.
