Niaja in Asakusa and Akihabara

My friend Niaja got her doctorate from MIT! And just as exciting, she arrived in Tokyo a couple of days ago and will be here for 8 months working at IBM Japan!

Today we met at Asakusa, looked around, and then also went over to Akihabara.

We were lucky that the weather held. It was a great afternoon. Here are a few photos.
