"Yushima-Seido (Below the Hill), and Akihabara (July 2010)"

Walking into the grounds of Yushima-Seido - near Ochanomizu Station - and having a look around in what looks tree-shade-cool in the video, but was a rather hot day (even in the shade).  After that, I continued down the hill to Akihabara and there are views of both the main street there and also side streets.

"Entering Yushima-Seido Grounds" (100723Fr-1359)

Starting from one of the streets that runs alongside Yushima-Seido, and then entering the Yushima-Seido grounds.  This kind of green is much appreciated when living in a mega-city!

"Promotional Something-or-Other in Akihabara Station" (100723Fr-1525)

Some sort of advertising campaign within Akihabara Station.  Since the privatization of JNR (now JR), they have been very inventive in ways of making money, but I notice that the bridges near Akihabara are rusting.  I hope they're not cutting costs on maintenance - which saves money short-term and costs even more money long term....
