Tokyo’s Electronics District

Akihabara is where one goes to find the latest in high-tech gadgets. I was there in 2008, about exactly 48 hours before the multiple-fatality stabbing spree that darkened the doorstep of this lively consumer district.

If you’re wondering about the girls in the French maid costumes, they weren’t kinky prostitutes. They were giving out free tissue packets with advertising  on them. Why wear such costumes? I have no idea– except that I imagine they sell a lot of what they’re selling to sarariman.
