A young man peruses giant ball pens (that's not a typo) in Akihabara.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Thank you for visiting my blog!
You went to AKIHABARA?!(Japanese sometimes call it AKIBA.)
Can you find something interesting?

Never saw ball pens that big. Funny shot.

@Putter: Yes. Unusually large. But then Japanese people use both hands to write.

Damon Schreiber from Toronto, Canada

This would appear to be one of the more unspeakably filthy images you've posted. Oh, 'pens'... never mind.

I saw a pen just like that in a store in Texas few days ago. Very nice images you show us from Japan. I here wish to thank you for your effort.
