Akihabara Busou Shoten is a weapons and armor store that sells almost anything you can imagine! Even anime and video game weapons can be found in this store. It also contains huge collections of weaponry and armor that range from traditional Japanese swords and kunai (Japanese daggers) to leather whips and flintlock pistols. All of their products are replicas based on real weapons. Even if you are not looking into buying any armor or weapons, customers are welcome to come in and to look around.
