About Akihabara Electric Town Promotion Association

The Akihabara Electric Town Promotion Association is a company that sells electric products in the so-called “Akihabara” area, with the aim of revitalizing the entire city and creating an environment where customers can be happy and enjoy shopping. It is a voluntary organization founded in September 1979.

The Akihabara Electric Town Promotion Association’s eye-catching customers will be the familiar “Electric Town Festival” held every spring, summer, and winter. The “Electric Town Festival” started in 1980, the year after the promotion association was established, and especially every summer and winter, we carry out big campaigns such as “Give a total cash of 60 million yen!” It was (Campaign present content and total amount are changed each time).

In addition to the Electric Town Festival, the Akihabara Electric Town Promotion Association is also working on a lot of things that customers think, “What? Are you doing that?”

First of all, “Color paving of the station square and the Chuo-dori sidewalk” completed in March 1995. The Electric Town Promotion Association and the three local promotion associations worked on Chiyoda Ward and Tokyo to finally achieve color paving of the entire central street including the JR Akihabara station square, and finally achieved it in eight years.
 Also, the ticket gates of JR Akihabara Station are “Electric Town Exit” and “Showa Dori Exit”, which were formerly “West Exit” and “East Exit”, but it is hard to understand, so JR Akihabara Station is called. I changed it to “Electric Town Exit” and “Showa Dori Exit”.
The “Akihabara” sign on the yellow subway signboard was also requested by the Electric Town Promotion Society.
 In addition, the town information magazine “AK Gazette” was published (1989-94), exhibited at audio fairs (currently A & V Festa),
and crime prevention patrol activities by members were held on national holidays and every Sunday. The Electric Town Promotion Association also conducts steady activities such as the management of “pedestrian paradise” on the street. This homepage was started as a part of such efforts to disseminate information, and it continues to this day.
Then, from April 2002, the “Akihabara Station Area Town Development Promotion Council” was established under the initiative of Chiyoda Ward, where the association, the administration, local residents, and developers met together to form the site of the former National Railways and JR With the redevelopment in front of Akihabara Station, such as the renovation of Akihabara Station and the entry of the Tsukuba Express (opened in August 2005), we have made every day effort to realize an attractive city.
As a result, Akihabara Daibiru was completed in March 2005 and Akihabara UDX was completed in March 2006 in Akihabara, which is widely known around the world as a town for home appliances and a PC. As a result of the industry-government-academia collaboration, the “Akihabara Crossfield is born, and in the future, “personal exchanges,” “information exchanges,” and “industrial exchanges” will become more active.
The Akihabara Electric Town Promotion Association will continue to work with the government and residents to create a safe and secure city, and all the members will work together to make our shopping even more enjoyable and enjoyable for our customers.
