On March 30, 2019, on the second floor of the radio department store, a long-established electric parts sales building in Akihabara, Tokyo, Maywa Denki's first official shop, Meiwa Denki Akihabara Store, will be opened.

On the theme of "from art to mass product", Meiwa Electric has everything from art such as nonsense machines that can only be obtained here to products such as the hit product Otamatone. It is a small but small shop full of nonsense products.

In addition, next to the "Maywa Denki Akihabara Store", we will open a rental space "Radio Super" produced by Meiwa Denki. The word "radio" is reinterpreted as "radical (radical and radical) objects", and creators who create unique products using the mechanism of electricity and machinery will open stores.
