Loki – Akihabara Style

Loki has been asking me to take him to Japan for a couple of years now. When I asked him why he wanted to go there, there was no hesitation: “Because that’s where Pokemon come from.”

As you might imagine, that led to a delicate conversation where I confirmed he did, in fact, realize that Pokemon did not simply roam the streets of Tokyo, as they had long since been hunted to extinction in Japan. I explained that one must travel to the remotest corners of Outer Mongolia for that sort of thing these days, so instead we went downtown LA to Little Tokyo, bought a couple of knock-off Pokemon figures, and called it a day.

This was taken with with an Nikon D800 and the awesome Tokina AT-X 16-28mm f2.8 lens, the best bargain in an ultra-wide autofocus zoom out there.
