Japanese senior citizen fashion and cuisine in full effect! Strolling down this 800m-long street, you will find no less than 200 shops that sell pretty much everything that a Japanese senior citizen needs and loves.

Akihabara-based company Thanko's new simplified projector for smartphone called "Sumaho de Theater" allows you to make your room a home theater at a reasonable price with no bulbs, no noisy fans, and no electricity.
1) Traditional Japanese dolls being traditional, (2) Micro-optical resonators creating wallets for light, (3) Teaser video for live action Attack on Titan movie, (4) CASIO throws down on the G-SHOCK marketing, and (5) Summer taiko drumming performance in Ebisu!
At the same summer festival in Ebisu that was featured in last week's Let's Visit Tokyo video, we were able to capture one of the Taiko acts from the opening ceremony on one of the days. Watch an entire Taiko session from start to finish in front of Ebisu station.
