AkihabaraNews is Japan & Asia tech; we work to find the cool and cultural news accessible only to a boots-on-the-ground team. 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.

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.

Sushi-Cat Update! (HD GALLERY) -

Some New Sushi Cats;
Some Old Sushi Cats

Well, we’ve learned that since our last check-in, there are a few new Sushi Cats in the collection - and it’s always a good day for Sushi Cats (neko-zushi). It’s a particularly good day for Badminton Geronimo over there. Pretty sure we need that on an iPhone case.

iREX Robot Wrap-Up -
Japan’s premier robot expo is over, and all that remains of iREX 2013 are the things we learned, contacts we made, and the videos, photos, and desperate attempts to effectively communicate the breadth of what exactly went down. Something beyond “Wow, it was like… so many awesome robots.” Not so easy, that.

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.
