Need. Wooden. Keyboard.

Saw this in the window of a shop at the Aki-Oka artists’ colony under the train tracks in Akihabara. Hacoa specializes in beautiful modern things made of wood: computer stuff (keyboards, mice), iPhone covers, pens and more. Directions to the under-the-tracks collective are here.

If you’d like to visit Aki-Oka Artisan the next time you’re in Tokyo, directions are on my website, The Tokyo Guide I Wish I’d Had.
