Chat with Idols!
Many popular idols you might know from TV, including the group Dempagumi.inc, as well as various idol apprentices belong to Akihabara Dear Stage. At this venue, unique idols' live performances are held every day and you even get the opportunity to chat to the performers while enjoying a drink. This location is a must-visit for experiencing idol culture at close quarters. The front shutter is always closed even during business hours, so finding the entrance might prove a bit difficult at first.
