Akihabara Street

Daily Photo - Akihabara Street

It took me many days in Tokyo before I finally made it over to one of my favorite areas - Ahikabara. This district is famous for its pure technology insanity! If you are a geek, then this is geek heaven!

 

Every street is filled with huge towers, each one flowing over with all sorts of technology, gadgets, games, robotics, toys, and scantily-clad-women. The streets are filled with girls that dress in... hmmm... how do I explain it? Imagine a grown woman wearing little-girl clothes, with puffy-laced mini-skirts, giant bows, and comely dispositions. They stand around, handing out little flyers, trying to get you to come into a shop, a cafe, or something in between.

 

There is even a cafe there with monitors built into the table. When you order a drink, your waitress goes over to the soda fountain, where a camera lies in the floor pointing upward. Upon pressing a special button, an extra blast of air is strategically blasted to increase your viewing cone.

 

Technical Problems

Some of you have mentioned on Twitter that the site is slow and is having some memory errors. I've got a few people looking at it and I hope to get it fixed up soon!
