A Week in Tokyo

Danny Choo is a guestblogger on Boing Boing. Danny resides in Tokyo, and blogs about life in Japan and Japanese subculture - he also works part time for the empire.
As a student living back in the UK many moons ago who wanted so badly to live and work in Japan, I know how others in the same position feel like. One of the things I try to do with my blog articles is to give a feel of what life is like in Tokyo and started the A Week in Tokyo series where I document and post extensive photos of my life. Tourist photos are great from time to time but I felt it was important to show the every day stuff too like going to the ward office, going to external meetings, attending events, shopping and what have you. The latest A Week in Tokyo 34 is up and this week includes dinner at the German embassy, live broadcasts, electric costs, recruiting for the fire brigade, Tech Crunch networking meetings and how to make a Mac into a media server for the Playstation 3.


  1. A few years back I talked to a friend – Japanese living in the US now – regarding a Japanese music video that just made me crack up. Wanted to know if he as an educated Japanese found the music of the Hinoi team as embarrassing as I as a German was cringing about music we found normal when we were teenagers.

    Could not get a clear statement out of him though, but I think his refusal to give me a straight NO was answer enough.
