[COLLECTION 1 IS HERE]

AkihabaraNews is Japan & Asia tech; the cool and cultural that only a boots-on-the-ground team can deliver. Our editors and contributors also provide perspective on everyday life: meeting the people, eating the foodtaking 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. With this project, we hope to share a little more of that.

The Living Gallery 
Each week, AkihabaraNews editors set out to collect 10 high-res shots of public Tokyo life. Some scream and grab the eye, some are subtle and nuanced, even mundane.

Reader submissions are also quite welcome: email your high-res Tokyo street shots, past or present, to info@, subject: TSS. Include your name and we’ll give you a shout out in the post.

Tokyo Street Shots are posted in mid-res here at the site, and high-res on Flickr. Leave a comment. Make a request. Share. Enjoy.

Japan might have made a less than stellar showing at that big soccer tournament in South America, but we can all move past that now - it’s okay - there’s another spectator event ready to take over, and it’s way better!

REVIEW: CASIO EX-FR10 Action Cam (GALLERY; VIDEO) - AkihabaraNews.com
Sony has changed up the form factor a bit, JVC and Ricoh have gone for full-on assault drop Space Marine armour (for the glory of the imperium of man!), and Panasonic went with the duo of innovative mounting option and first-to-the-market 4k for theirs. In the end though, they all did basically the same thing: capturing the action. The one Japanese electronics behemoth that was noticeably absent from the fray was CASIO… until now.

Okay let’s be honest, is there anything that could be more effective in motivating not only fans (mostly males), but also drivers (same thing) to get excited about racing? If anyone has any suggestions or alternatives, let us know in the comments. We dare you.

"Human Accident" - AkihabaraNews.com

It was approaching 4pm on a Monday afternoon in December last year, and I had just finished an interview with a company in Kawaguchi City, Saitama Prefecture, just outside Tokyo. It was time to head back into the city, but when I arrived at Nishi-Kawaguchi train station and saw the mass of emergency vehicles lined up outside, I realized that one of those all too common delays, a Jinshin Jiko (人身事故), a “human accident,” had likely occurred. It’s a curious euphemism.

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.
