Osaka Street Shots: The Living Gallery (Collection 5; TSS Special Set)
Special Osaka Edition
It can't be Tokyo all the time, and it shouldn't - there's a whole lot of Japan out there, so we occasionally interrupt the usual Tokyo Street Shots series to bring you a different city with a different feel, a different atmosphere, offering a slightly less metropolitan or buttoned-down aesthetic. To quote AkihabaraNews Special Contributor Jordan Matthew Yerman:
"If Tokyo is a too-cool-for-school designer with the effortlessly stylish outfit, Osaka is wearing dad jeans while fixing your stereo."
Street Shots Gallery Series
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 food, taking 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 also 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. Some 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/Japan Street/Wherever Shots, past or present, to info@, subject: TSS. We'll toss a shout-out and link to the media sharing site of your choice.
