Buy Electronic components. Buy computer parts. Buy LED lights. Buy a charger for a 30 year old laptop. Buy headphones. Geek out on Anime things. Buy anime related stuff. Buy used cameras. Go to a maid cafe.

There is also a nice temple called Kanda Myojin. You can buy a protective sticker for your computer there. It is also very pretty.

If you want to go to a maid cafe, but don't like maids, there is a fun Train Izakaya that you can go to. It was featured on Cool Japan.

Also, there are a few retro video game stores, like Super Potato, that are always a good time.

If you are looking for something more specific that is related to electronics, there will probably be a shop there, but there are too many to list here.

But, yeah, TL;DR, mostly shops with electronics.

If you like anime related stuffs, head to Animate. They have multiple floors filled with anime related products! Just looking at cute figures is a fun time for me :)
I heard many people like to shop at DONKI store. There is also a famous maid cafe called "@home cafe" in the building of DONKI.
