I dunno if there are any kind of authentic "Ryokans"
in those areas. Ryokans tend to be in the more country
or less-metropolitan areas of Japan. For that reason, you'd prolly
have better luck finding a business hotel as there are shitloads
of those in the Shibuya, Shinjuku and Harajuku area.

Ahh, Akihabara.

Otaku palace.

That place scares the shit out of me sometimes.
You got these boyz n' girls in costumes, yakuza folk,
and the otakuboyz with their paper bags and long ass hair. The thing about
Akihabara is that if you're looking to buy some electronics,
then that would be the place to be. Recently, the price differencial
between Akihabara products and those sold at other cities
isn't all that different. The Akihabara shop keepers, though, seem
to be more willing to negociate with the prices.

Shibuya-ku isn't all that far from AKihabara.
I'd say, about alittle under thirty minutes on the
Yamanote line.
