Untitled Two-Man Tokyo Tech Show - Episode 1 (VIDEO)
Untitled Two-Man Tokyo Tech Show
Okay yeah, admittedly, our run-and-gun, impromptu, low-tech tech show’s half-baked title isn’t all that great - we’ll see about getting it all propered up eventually. And yes, we know it runs pretty long, and we’ll work on that. To be fair, our unexpected special guest, the pleasantly inebriated Mr. Kikuchi, an Akihabara IT worker, added several minutes, but he also added considerable quality.
For this our first venture, we shot in our namesake neighborhood, Akihabara, not far from the Japan Railways Akihabara train station. Future episodes will also be shot at random locations in and around the Tokyo area with the possibility of field trips.

Have a watch. Let us know.
Breakdown: EPISODE 1
AkihabaraNews' contributor Nayalan Moodley and editor Reno J. Tibke stand around in very cold and windy Akihabara waxing geeky on the latest tech news. This week, a drunken yet very nice and fairly polite IT worker jumped in to talk about the ills currently faced by the Japanese community, including a loss of social cohesion and some history and some stuff our non-native ears couldn’t pick up. He was a cool guy.
