The life-size, more "realistic" models were kinda meh, but the pre-Transformers Diaclone and Microman toys, along with generational collections covering yearly character iterations, themes, and variants, in addition to some super-obscure Japan-only figures - that's where the magic was...and we finally found this lost gallery!
Everything about the EX-FR100 Outdoor Recorder feels a little better than 2014's EX-FR10, It’s faster, snappier, button pushes register more easily and the engine generally feels like it’s been overhauled. But what about the output? How's that new sensor, new lens, and what about video? Well, come on in!
MTFBWY! We’ve collected two for each of the three original films. So go ahead, take a look, and take a step into late 70s/early 80s state of the art movie marketing. And let's be honest, time and place and culture and history pretty much dictate that the original trilogy will never be matched.

It’s safe to say that when the world thinks ”Tokyo,” first to mind are the flashy, bombastic, visually stunning urban Asia aesthetics of the iconic Shibuya, Shinjuku, and Ginza neighborhoods. ...but, what if it all - big and small - just vanished? Now we have that answer.
When it comes to Japan's love of celebrating seasonal transitions, spring is definitely at the top of that leaderboard. Our now archived Tokyo Street Shots street photography gallery series has some great springtime shots, and we wanted to get them out there once again!
Just...amazing work. Today we're re-sharing this article to commemorate the 5th anniversary of the 2011 Tohoku Disaster and showcase a wonderful example of using cutting-edge technology to further international cooperation toward community reestablishment and rebuilding.
One of the great things about living in Japan is knowing that there is 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!
If wide and short were the overarching themes in automotive bodies at the 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon, slender and tall (by japanese standards, at least) was the the look most companies went for when choosing ladies’ bodies to bring attention to their short, wide, show ponies.
Turbo kits to make the new Mazda MX-5 and older Toyota 86 fast enough to actually be fun, extremely finely crafted components, all at the biggest Tokyo Auto Salon ever (325,501 peeps over 3 days). Some amazing, lustworthy rides to be seen in this finely assembled gallery of awesome.
