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.

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.

BIG-ASS GALLERY #2 - 2014 Tokyo International Toy Show

That's Right, Yet Another Big-Ass Gallery of Really Great Photos. Of Toys 

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.
Japanese Girls Underwater in Knee-High Mecha-Socks (MOSTLY SFW GALLERY)
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.

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).

It was exactly what it sounds like it was: an impossibly dense diamond of dorkiness crammed into the Tokyo Big Sight convention center.

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.
