Akihabara in the Rain

A smoking area by the river

I was feeling rather disappointed when I snapped these photos, because I only had an hour to explore Akihabara, due to a last-minute change of plans, and because of the dreary, rainy weather that day. The streets were mostly empty except for a few maid-cafe waitresses who were standing outside to welcome customers despite the rain and wind.

Looking at them now, I'm glad that I got to see another side of Tokyo - rain makes everything look so different - and these turned out to be some of my favourite shots from the trip.
