If you look at a line graph, today's numbers are encouraging. The curve is clearly flattening. With half of Tokyo having at least 1 shot, and more getting it each day, this should be Covid's last stand.

In late July, positive cases spiked about 3000 in one week. For about 3 weeks since then, cases have plateaued at around 5000 per day, which indicates we've reached the top on the curve. With vaccine shots being given daily, this will likely be last of the surges until everyone is fully vaccinated.

The game center is in Ikebukuro, but you're right anyway. Akihabara is just a big collection of Sofmaps and BicCameras now. All the personality is gone.
