Taito ward in Tokyo is about 2km north-east of the Imperial Palace, and is best known for having (one section of) the Akihabara electronics and otaku culture district, the old east-end Asakusa district and the museum district of Ueno. Taito ward's population is gradually growing as more apartments are built, replacing the traditional family homes. Here a pedestrian walks in front of a construction site.

Here a young man sits alone with his phone on a railing in an underpass between Ginza and Shinbashi.

Security guards in Yotsuya talk with a man on the street. Security in Japan, while tight, is amiable. Even the police are there more to facilitate good community relations than to suspect people of crime. Read more about security in Japan.
