Hello. Nice to meet you.
This is Salicylic_acid3, and I blog about custom keyboards in Japan.
I am not good at English, but write in English with the help of Google translation.
It may be hard to read, but I hope it will be a reference for Akihabara sightseeing.

The items that are aligned are expensive to buy individually.
I will skip the explanation of the tool and introduce it with only photos.
Key cap Capsule toys machine
You can find a keycap Capusle toy machine (aka "Gacha gacha" or "Gachapon") right when enter the shop.
There you can challenge your luck to get a few keycaps from pimpmykeyboard's grabbags.
Each draw is 200 JPY.
I'm sorry, but only in Japanese yen.
Keyboards used in the store (not for sale)
You can find so many unique and cool projects that shop owners / enthusiasts use.

Please drop by at Yushakobo on your next Japan trip! Additionally you can even go sightseeing in Tokyo, so I think it's worth the time and money.
I am sorry if it is difficult to read.
I will also try hard to write articles on Japanese keyboards in English.
Ask questions on Twitter or in the comments section of this article.
I am not good at English, so it takes time to reply.
