Untitled Two-Man Tokyo Tech Show 
Our cliché cop-out of a name is (EVEN NOW) is still holding strong... it's kinda sticking. If anyone's got something better, leave a comment and if we use your suggestion we'll send you a super powerful laser or something. That's not joke. We've got one.

Episode 1: Geektastic in Akihabara

Episode 2: Shiny in Shibuya

Episode 3: Shenanigans in Shinjuku

Episode 4: Nerding-Out in Nakano

Episode 5: Ginza & Sony Event
This week, AkihabaraNews contributor Nayalan Moodley and editor Reno J. Tibke sat around in narcissistic Ginza Ward waxing geeky on the latest J-tech news and taking a quick look at some Sony home electronics concepts and prototypes.

Now, as we said when we posted raw video of Sony's Short-Throw 4K projector:

"Ginza's kind of like a $59 sandwich."

That's because it's impossible to justify the price. Sure, you could eat uhhh...a panda meat sandwich that might ring up around $59 (and be marginally hilarious), but it would be wildly immoral and practically useless. Tokyo's famed Ginza Ward, for all it's lavish, boutique shopping and Maserati dealerships and exclusive this and that, is still just kind of...meh.

Point is, at the end of the day, the only reason to eat a panda sandwich is to be able to tell some other idiot that you ate a panda sandwich. Makes sense, right?

But, we went there anyway because the Sony building is there, and Sony might be starting to get their groove back! Have a watch to see their projected table display, ceiling display, wall display, and that beautiful 4K projector. Also, in addition to the Sony Q&A:

Feedback?
Do give us your suggestions for future locations, your feedback, your criticism, let us know if you want to hear some of Nayalan's Nordic death metal in the intro, any corrections, call-outs, tips. If you just wanna make fun of us, we can take it.

Trolls with flair and originality will receive extra points and a cookie.

Now, have a watch. Share. Like. Sociallymedia us. Let us know.

...and maybe, just maybe win a badass laser.

TokyoStreetView: Todoroki Valley (4K VIDEO) - AkihabaraNews.com
An environment unique to Tokyo, Todoroki Valley is a simple walking trail adjacent to the Yazawa River and surrounded by a very dense forest that totally shields it from Kan-Pachi Dori, one of Tokyo’s busiest roads. While the Todoroki Valley’s 1.2 km walking trail is pure bliss, it’s only at the end of the voyage that you can discover yet another hidden wonder: the Todoroki Fudo Temple. Here you can enjoy some delicious mochi (Japanese rice sweets) and ramune (Lemonade), and you have the option to let the gods hear your prayers and wash away your sins.
