People of Akihabara

8 years ago by in Around the world

During the production of the Tokyo Realtime Akihabara audio tour, I took many photos in the area.

TOKYO REALTIME is a series of audio guided walking tours revealing new sides to Tokyo’s most interesting neighborhoods. Each tour includes a CD with mp3 audio, an area map, and a booklet of area photography.

Akihabara is All Japan news’s subculture hotspot for anime, manga, games and figures which attracts hardcore fans – and curious visitors – from all over the world. Internationally recognized experts on the area take you on an unforgettable, behind-the-scenes tour of the area. You’ll visit all the must-see shops, gain historical knowledge, cultural insights and learn insider jargon like otagei, moé, itasha and more.

I’ve decided to share some of the photos which didn’t make it into the tour photo booklet. This first series focuses mostly on candid street portraits.
