I’ve been coming to Tokyo for many many years now and nothing beats just walking around and stumbling in the most weirdest stores and eating some really delicious food at places you wouldnt expect to have food.
Here’s pt.1 of the journey to some good eats and even better electronics in Tokyo. I brought a 5Dmk2 and a Panasonic GF2 with me to the trip. I used the GF2 for these photos.
First up, Hamburger breakfast at Shinjuku Station’s shopping center, Floor 7/8.
Shinjuku Station to Akihabara for some electronics and toys. We need to make a YO-YoGi tee.
Japan is full of electronics but Akihabara is thee spot.
Nice R33. Lots of nice cars cruise around this place.
Walked into a toy store where you can nerd out on any and everything. Here’s some girl toys for the boys who are into it.
I’ll take one of these.
Climbed 5 flights, checked out all the floors of toys and then headed to a cafe. As we walked to the cafe, we saw this girl dude. Come on man.. save it for your house. There’s tons of dudes walking around cosplaying. WHAT THE F..
Here’s the Gundam Cafe. Something to check out.
Enough food. Tons and tons of people come here to Yodobashi.
I dont think I’ve ever seen these escalators empty.
Lets go check out camera’s. This one caught my eye. It releases on the 28th this month. Super tiny and nice. Interchangeable len’s. Full HD. Pentax.
$950 Rice Cooker. Rows of them. Damn.
Exercise things? Sure… Noah and Albert are down.
Massage chairs? There is nothing like this for sale in the USA. Even the $5000 ones in the US suck.
Stay as long as you like. Really, you can. These two fell asleep.
