Day 2.95: A first look at Akihabara

I know I know, these decimals are getting a little abusive. I am sorry I just have so many photos. (I actually made an effort to not take so many photos, and I still ended up with over 1000)

Yes that is Tommy Lee Jones. IMG_0461 IMG_0460 IMG_0458Maid cafe’s are basically places where men go to be fawned over. Many people in the west are boggled by such things, but I can only think of them as classier hooters. This one is vampire themed.

Breakfast in Japan is quite interesting. This is a breakfast hot dog. Nuff said.

Japanese Dr. Pepper is much different than DP in the states. I really liked it. It was spicier and less sweet.  Also, it is also contained in really sweet steel cans.IMG_0452It was really surreal going through an entire portion of the city where anime was plastered everywhere. For the most part anime is not present in other parts of the city, and so this area of Japan is what  14-year old me thought all of japan looked like.

Yeah, That is a Coco’s. No, I didn’t go in. Apparently I missed out though. My friend Cody, who has been to Japan many times, told me they serve some amazing Japanese fare.IMG_0450 IMG_0456

The Colonel was after me. Luckily I avoided his Wrath.

I much preferred light railways to Subways as they were above ground, and often times much nicer to look at. The longer and longer I stayed in Japan the more I realized how scary accurate anime background and detail work is. IMG_0442

Just a bit of a photo dump today. Enjoy. See you tomorrow dear readers!
