The Living Gallery 
It can't be all tech all the time, so each week AkihabaraNews editors set out to collect 10 high-res shots of average, public Tokyo life. S
ome of the Street Shots scream and grab the eye, some are subtle and nuanced, and some are quite mundane. In any case, we feel lucky to be here and privileged to share the Tokyo that we see. Oh, and to add a bit of flavor every once and again, we also stir-in a few Osaka Street Shots.

Reader submissions are very welcome: just email your high-res Tokyo Street Shots, past or present, to info@, subject: TSS. We'll toss a shout-out and link to the media sharing site of your choice. 

Leave a comment. Make a request. Share. Enjoy.

ATTENTION:
Do Not Go from Adult to Spastic Child in 1.2 Nanoseconds

Anyone can set up a camera for long exposure shots, but there’s undeniable artistry in choosing one’s subject matter, mastering the composition process, and holding true to a theme; Tokyo, a contemplation of the profound socio-technological complexity of the largest city in human history, delivers an exemplar thereof.

Licking Pikachu in Shibuya (GALLERY) - AkihabaraNews.com
If you have ever wanted to a lick a Pikachu, I can confirm that he/she/[insert your preferred gender here] tastes of mango. Yes, that’s right. If your childhood dreams of catching them all actually involved eating them all, you now can. Except, by all Pokémon, I actually mean mainly Pikachu.
Streets of Osaka - AkihabaraNews.com
If Tokyo is a too-cool-for-school designer with the effortlessly stylish outfit, Osaka is wearing dad jeans while fixing your stereo. Japan’s third-largest city becomes its second-largest during the workday, and its nighttime streets reward those who give them more than a casual glance.
