As promised, we will be taking a look at the Pedestrian Paradise which I visited last Sunday at Akihabara.
Quick history: the roads in Akihabara were normally blocked on Sundays and street performers, cosplayers used to flood the streets. However, due to an unfortunate incident in 2008, the tradition was suspended indefinitely for various reasons.

It was a nostalgic sight indeed as I last experienced Pedestrian Paradise during a trip to Japan back in 2005.
There were a lot of cameras from the press covering the story that day
There will be more volunteers looking after the crowds, and some shops even had sales to commemorate the event XD
Street performers are no longer allowed, but cosplayers took to the streets as if the blank of 2 years never happened... Xp
