This bizarre “black” hotdog looks like it has been burnt to a crisp but it is really dyed with squid ink. You can find this food for sale in Akihabara, Tokyo.

In central Tokyo, city living is so crowded that people are forced to live in rooms that are not much more than a big cabinet with a shelf.

Kigurumi is an extreme form of cosplay that involves wearing a costume along with an oversized, fake head. In Tokyo’s Akihabara district, the Kigurumi Café t.t.t offers customers a fairly unique dining experience as waitresses here, wear full-body suits of popular anime characters and even play mini games with the customers whilst in character. The café does have a strict ‘no touching’ policy although they do allow photographs.

Those who search for some really expensive realty should have Tokyo as their starting point. The apartment dubbed “The House” that is located in the fanciest neighborhood of the capital of Japan has only one bedroom, but its price tag is the mind-boggling $21.8 million.

Meet Natsumi Hayashi from Tokyo who simply loves to levitate. She always brings her camera with her and creates these photos of her floating. It is not that easy to do as in order for her to look like floating and not like a jump, the facial expressions  should be controlled as well as hair or body flailing shouldn’t be noticeable. I can say, that she reached her goal.

Tokyo underground system is a day-by-day insanity. Local residents and guests are often pressed against windows and other people. Pictures from the series “Tokyo Compression” by Michael Wolf perfectly document the real daily Tokyo subway atmosphere. I wouldn’t enjoy starting my day like this.

This is the Vampire Cafe in Tokyo and it’s kinda spooky. It features spiders, skulls, baroque music and it is a very dark place. But the food is good and it doesn’t have any blood on it. The best part is that the waitresses all wear dark little French maid outfits. And it’s not that expensive, dinner for two can cost as much as $100.

This three-story building is located in Tokyo, Japan. It has its own name – 63.02º because its facade is inclined 63.02 degrees toward the front road. This allows passersby see a wide and deep view of the house that has a small building of a SOHO (2 and 3 floors) and an apartment for rent (1 floor). This project designed by Jo Nagasaka and Schemata Architecture Office is significant and unique.

Tokyo is the city of lights. At least, it’s the way I see it when I look at the pictures of Tokyo at night. In this collection of photos, you’ll see the capital of the Land of the Rising Sun during the day, evening, morning and at night. No matter when, the city is just beautiful.

This is Kyoto University dormitory built almost a century ago, to be precise in 1913.Student squatters who live there pay an extremely low price: ¥2,500, about $27. Constructed at the southern edge of Kyoto University's Yoshida Campus, the dormitory was self-administered by the students who were in charge to select new applicants to live there.The building is maintained by students themselves, even though they did some little upgrades (like Ethernet cables in the corridors that lead to each room), but any of major building repairs have never been conducted and the building can't be considered safe, plus hygiene conditions are quite unsatisfactory. 
Well, you’ll see it all inside the post.
