Akihabara

Crossposted from Glamorous in Retrospect. Author: Stephanie.

We wandered around part of Akihabara today. That’s the nerd/geek/gamer Mecca district of Tokyo, full of electronics stores, arcades, maid cafés, and every fannish thing under the sun.

(Speaking of maid cafés, the girls out on the streets in their frilly uniforms shilling for their cafés looked so cold and unhappy! They had coats and scarves on over their uniforms, but most of them had short skirts and thin stockings on in the Arctic winds. We felt so sorry for them!)

At one point we stopped for Toby to check his phone for the map to the gachapon store we were heading for, and I looked up to see the sun hitting these buildings in a nice way, and snapped a picture with my phone.
