A store specializes in those nostalgic games that meant the childhood of today's adults.
This store is called "Super Potato" and is a store that attracts visitors from all over the world due to its interesting collection of classic games and consoles.
The store is divided into several floors.
The first of them is full of all the original and new cassettes of the original games, from the first video game of "Super Mario Bros" to "The Legend of Zelda".
Any classic game that you are yearning to get, because of this store you can get it.
The next floor receives you with a large statue of Mario.
Here you can find stuffed animals, key chains, candy and more, characterized by the main characters of retro games.
But what is the use of having the original cassettes if the consoles do not manufacture them?
On this floor you will find classic consoles in new condition, just as if they had gone on sale yesterday.
From the first "Game Boy" console to the "Super Nintendo".
The first two floors have a cozy atmosphere, full of antique TVs showing the main screen of classic games.
Some of the televisions have controls to try the old games again, for free.
The store has background music, and all the songs are of retro video games, giving us the feeling of having reached that nostalgic time full of joy.
On the top floor there is a collection of video game machines, which were formerly used in the "Game Center".
This gives the opportunity for a few coins, to try those retro helicopter video games, fights, agility, and simplicity, just like in the decade of the 80s or the 90s.
To accompany the experience, a large assortment of classic Japanese sweets that were formerly sold in stores is on sale. These sweets are called "Dagashi" which literally translates as "Economic Sweets".
It is impressive that in a city as modern as Akihabara, equipped with the newest animes, you can find a classic shop that invites the visitor to take a walk to the origin of the nowadays culture of Akihabara.
