LIBERTY, Where You Find the Freedom to be a Child at Heart
Whenever you hear the place Akihabara, there are two among all other things that would pop up in your mind: electronics and animations! Indeed, as you stroll down the busy streets of the place, you will find yourself looking straight up to the sky to get a glimpse of several tall buildings’ tops. These buildings house not only apparels and food shops, but several and kinds of electronic shops, as well as hobby and book shops that sell magazines and comics on animation; and of course, even toys. When you think of toys, they are almost always associated only with babies and kids, but here in the bustling and liberated city of Akihabara, teenagers, college students, working professionals, tycoons and fathers who are in their middle age, and even the retirees have the privilege to enjoy and collect some anime action figures among other types of toys.
Indeed, there is freedom in whatever you have and want to do as a hobby. Hence, Liberty perfectly comes in the picture, giving both the kids and adults their desired freedom to enjoy the small toy kingdom within their colorful shops scattered around Akihabara. There are more than three branches of Liberty around the Akihabara Station. When you have the whole day to explore the place, you might even discover more than three Liberty shops in the place. Liberty deals will second hand toys that are still in good quality and one good thing about this is you can find collectible items that you can rarely find in other toy shops that only sell brand new toys. And since these toys are already used, you will only get them at very friendly prices. You can also sell your unwanted but still in-good-quality toys for a small amount of cash. The store provides a stimulating sight of colors with different kinds of toy collections from action figures, miniature transportations – trains, cars, airplanes and other aircrafts – and infrastructures, robots, etc.
Take the Electric Town Exit from the JR Akihabara Station and go right past the Atre building until you reach the RadioKaikan building. Across that building, you will find the first Liberty Shop. It’s just a small one but filled with toys of all sorts.

You can access the JR Akihabara Station via different intersecting train and subway lines: the JR Chuo-Sobu Line, the JR Keihin Tohoku Line, JR Yamanote Line, the Toei Subway-Shinjuku Line and the Tsukuba Express.
