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.

Some Beautiful Cosplay to Kick Off Golden Week (PROBABLY NSFW GALLERY)
Really, it seems like yesterday, but it’s been more than two months since we brought readers a nice, succinct (lightly curated) cosplay gallery. While anytime is a good time for such things, since the Golden Week holidays are (kind of) starting tomorrow with Showa Day, we decided that putting up a bit more light reading - and viewing - was in order.
POP'N'CUTE: Harajuku Kawaii Live Show/Fashion Event Report

Squee! the System
Mainstream Japanese society is boring. One could argue that mainstream society globally is never exciting, but the homogenous nature and stubborn adherence to routines and social hierarchies make this island nation particularly dull.

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.

JUNKWORLD Sells Used Japanese Electronics. These are Not Hot Ticket Items
While certainly not an exclusively Japanese set of preferences, the desire for the latest, newest, freshest consumer products has a particularly robust… uhh, momentum over here. And it’s also particularly comprehensive.

The Hikaru Skirt, a Fashion Statement that Demands Yet Defies Explanation.
One of the great things about living in Japan is knowing that there are a neverending string of things that you’ll never fully understand. The Hikaru Skirt (“hikaru” just means “shining”) is a pretty good example thereof. But as goofy as these might be, they do catch (and keep) the eye!

It’s Just Different Over Here
As with almost every spot of Western culture that Japan Hoovers up, in accordance with the nuance of local tastes, i.e., straight-up Borg-like assimilative capabilities, the institution of Star Wars has been exhaustively Japanified. The same popular characters are popular, but often they’re just doing other stuff...

Sushi-Cat Update! (HD GALLERY) - AkihabaraNews.com

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.

Tokyo Street Shots: The Living Gallery (RAINY SEASON SPECIAL EDITION) - AkihabaraNews.com

Rainy Season Special Edition
This week's Street Shots installment celebrates, err...laments the arrival of Japan's rainy season. Though relatively mild thus far here in Tokyo, when the torrents do fall on we the tens of millions living in very close proximity, it can get uncomfortable quickly.
