Tokyo Street Shots: A Living Gallery

Tokyo Street Shots - AkihabaraNews.com

Introducing:
Tokyo Street Shots

AkihabaraNews readers come for Japan & Asia tech news, the cool and cultural that only a boots-on-the-ground team can deliver. Staff and contributors also provide perspective on everyday life: meeting the people, eating the food, taking the train, using the tech, and walking the streets of this pulsating seethe of technology and social structure that, with approximately 36 million metro area inhabitants, is far and away the world’s largest city. Ever. We decided to start sharing a little more of that.

Living Gallery
We’ve tasked a team of photographers with delivering 10 high-res shots/week of public Tokyo life. Some will scream and grab the eye, some will be subtle and nuanced, even mundane. We also welcome submissions from readers: email your high-res shots, past or present, to info@. Include your name and we’ll give you a shout out in the post.

Tokyo Street Shots will be posted in mid-res here at the site, and high-res on Flickr. In this our inaugural installment, all photos were taken by contributor Nayalan Moodley, AKA DarcNoodlesLeave a comment. Make a request. Enjoy.

Taking underwater photos of girls in bikinis wearing knee-high mecha-socks might be one of the better jobs ever to have been conceived in the history of work. And if one could also get those photos published in a book and sell it for money, the gig would definitely crack the top 10. Well, someone nailed it.

Holiday Gift Guide 2014: AkihabaraNews' Top 15 Japanese Gadgets
Well, we’ve put together quite a range: from $6 sushi socks to an $80 HD-video spywatch to a $260 Japanese pasta maker to a $2,000 emotional robot - there’s something for everyone on your list...even if your list is just you! Before jumping in, we have to say that this was not easy. We cover a whole lot of wonderful and unique Japanese gadgets and everyday practical products, and narrowing it all down to a manageable gift guide is less of a search and more of an exercise in sacrifice. But choose we did!
We’ve racked up about 2.5 months since last we published one of these galleries, and the timing works: we tend to do it on Japanese holidays. Today’s gallery celebrates one player in particular: the very gifted and minimally costumed Ms. Ringo Mitsuki.

REVIEW: Casio Selfie-Cam (Me, Myself & I)

The Casio EX-TR35 is a peculiar beast...
Were you to look at the specs, you’d see a 12 megapixel 1/23 inch backlit CMOS sensor mated to a 3.8mm (Full frame equivalent of 21mm) lens in a small, but not particularly impressive, plastic body.

The Girls of Tokyo Auto Salon 2016 (GALLERY)
If wide and short were the overarching themes in automotive bodies at the 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon, slender and tall (by japanese standards, at least) was the the look most companies went for when choosing ladies’ bodies to bring attention to their short, wide, show ponies.

Very Big Game Show
If you haven't been to Makuhari Messe before, know that 'convention center' doesn't quite do it justice. No, 'stadium' is a closer approximation of the venue's size and footprint on the northeastern edge of Tokyo Bay [MAP], part of the Tokyo Metro Area, but actually in Chiba Prefecture (not far from from Tokyo Disney Land).
