■ Background of Akihabara Auction

Auctions have become familiar with the advent of flea market apps. On the other hand, real auctions have great advantages, such as a sense of realism that cannot be experienced online, a sense of security that allows buyers to check the actual item, and a guarantee system based on a certificate.

Therefore, they decided to hold the first special auction centered on pop culture and subculture in Akihabara, which is a sacred place for Japanese pop culture and subculture. They are following online initiatives such as developing a new system and enlivening the live feeling, as well as the convenience of being able to easily participate on a smartphone.

By holding a new trend of AUCTION in Akihabara, they collaborate with neighboring companies and promote to attract more customers from overseas who are particularly interested in Japanese culture. They send information from Akihabara so that they can contribute to the establishment and further revitalization of businesses rooted in Akihabara and become a landmark.
