A duck in Akihabara

A few days ago we headed to Akihabara. We haven’t done a whole lot of touristy things on this trip mainly because, well, that was kind of the point. But this place was on Peter’s to do list. Akihabara is apparently the electronics district (+ the maid cafe area, but we avoided that proper cause a wee bit yuck) and on weekends they stop traffic on the main road. We wandered up and down the middle of this massive road, filled with people just hanging, wandering, photographing. It was kind of neat. I attempted some sort of street photography, trying to be all stealth and stuff with varying results.

When our feet were tired from walking we found this little covered plaza that hosted a bunch of little stalls. They offered sake tastings (+ stuff for sale, of course!), which Peter of course had to try. For me, the sake non-lover a couple of stands offered beer, so we sat down on the sidewalk, people watched and sipped some tasty beverages. Just as we were finishing up I looked up and there was a pet duck. I kid you not. A spanking white duck, on a lead with tiny tiny tiny little red booties. It was odd and quite captivating. I am now wondering if there’s a duck boot store in Tokyo. If yes I’d really like to go. Anyone know of any?
