Danny Choo and Akiba

Had a one-in-a-million chance today to follow Danny Choo around Akihabara today while he was shooting for his next YouTube video. Also along for the show was Setsuko Harada with Jonny Li manning the videocamera.

Akihabara is one of the best places in Tokyo to get interesting, visually stunning, and socially confusing photos, and watching Danny do his thing is a sight to behold. I can’t believe the energy he has. We spent the afternoon dodging the fuzz, blocking traffic, harassing maids, and chasing high school students around town. Can’t remember the last time I had so much fun.

Can’t wait to see the finished video. If you want to see some of his previous vids, check out his page on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/user/tokyostormtrooper . Highly recommended!

  1. That sounds like an amazing day! Iiii na : ) I can’t wait to see the video – another one to add to the list.

  2. Hahah I really like watching the videos Danny puts up. When I was in Japan I was hoping to see me wandering.. or rather dancing around Akihabara! I’m glad you had gotten the chance to hangout with him. Cant wait to see the new video
