Rainy Evening in Akihabara

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 7 August 2016 in Cityscape & Urban.

After leaving Tokyo National Museum, I stopped in Akihabara, the electronics shops area. I checked out a couple of the multistory stores that have all kinds of electronics and appliances. One floor is always photography related. The selection is massive. I had no idea of the variety of selfie sticks for example. Cleaning brushes for dusting your camera; there are dozens, of different sizes, shapes, and colors, on offer.

As I learned when I lived in Japan for a year, the prices on cameras and lenses are not a bargain in Japan. I'll stick with B&H Photo or the other big camera stores in New York City.

I'll be busy the next few weeks. Commenting will be spotty at best.

The magnificent view of the city. Rain can enhance a view to beauty. As a Finn, I would start soon need the forest. It is great to see in place.
