Big Chuck’s Japan-o-rama 2014: Tokyo, Akihabara, Robots, and Vans

Dj2014 15

Big Chuck’s Japan-o-rama 2014: Tokyo, Akihabara, Robots, and Vans @ equals zero.

I’m going to make no pretense of this report being some kind of review of or introduction to Japanese culture. It’s going to be shamelessly specialized towards maker folk with otaku tinges who are more into vans than they should be.  So perhaps, in a way, this is my own “Weird Japan” page that will join the ranks of others’ trip reports and photo albums on the matter, but hopefully with my own personal twist and much less hexadildopods (Don’t say I didn’t warn you…)

This is most definitely going to be another one of those ridiculously long posts that I will have to split into parts beforehand so it can be navigated. I have no less than 120 photos lined up for this page. That’s more than I typically take for an entire project build, spread over five days of running all Gaijin Smash like around the city.

  1. They have a maker shop with a 5-axis milling machine and a pick-and-place?
    I know it is Tokyo, but I had to search for weeks just to find a 3D-printer I could use on my own college campus… Well, that is why online stores exist here in the US, I guess.
