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.
To be honest, we’ve not yet decided if this is awesome or an abomination, but preliminarily, we’ll offer this: if they promise to accommodate not only annoying, yappy mini-canine rats and produce models for big dogs, too, then we’ll hold off on condemnation (as of now, they do at least plan to make a large-dog version). But only if!
It was after the second world war that Akihabara became Tokyo’s hottest market for electronics and other household goods, but it wasn’t until around 1980 that Akihabara started to became the place to go for all your computer needs - and then, it changed again...

1) This will keep you charged up whilst bike commuting, 2) This will allow you to document the trip (or spy on people post-arrival), 3) This place might be your destination (if you're paying respects or looking for a mid-cemetery playground), 4) This will tell you all about one of the best 4K M4/3s on the market, 5) Shrug. Okay...
If you're reading AkihabaraNews then you've probably got some kind of interest in Japan and have already seen a pile of cherry blossom galleries this year. But how much of the actual hanami did you see? Galleries of flowers are a ¥10 for a dozen, but actual humans doing actual hanami - much more interesting.
Some caveats aside, the GH4 has AMAZING 4K video quality and colors that are even better than the Sony AX100. The GH4 offers stunningly sharp videos, which some have complained are too sharp! Seriously guys? Too Sharp? This is freaking 4K here not SD! Dive in for more from Aki founder DAIMAOU!
Yanaka is primarily famous for its vast cemetery where people come not only to pay respects to their ancestors and loved ones, but also to stroll about and let the kids enjoy a bit of fun at one of the playgrounds! Yep you read that correctly: Yanaka cemetery hosts a few playgrounds for kids.
