Tokyo Street Shots
AkihabaraNews is Japan & Asia tech, and 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 and/or Nagoya Street Shots, and even Nagano Street Shots make the cut.

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.

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.
