Hello world!

Welcome to the random thoughts of Eric Ness.

You may be wondering about the title of this blog, especially the word denkigai.  Denkigai is a Japanese word that literally means electric street.  To most people familiar with Japan, the word Denkigai refers to Akihabara district in Tokyo where anything and everything electronic can be found.  Every time I visit Japan, I must carve out time to visit this electronic wonderland.

There is one more reason my blog is named Denkigai.  Denkigai in Japanese is pronounced “den key guy.”  Denki means electric or electricity.  Gai means a street or row, typically a line of shops.  So if we take the Japanese word Denki and the English pronounciation for street which is “guy” we get Electric Guy which of course is me!
