This is the second week now. Break from Akihabara, lets visit some other places. This time around, we visit the Sensoji temple in Asakusa \o/
Can you guess what anime the below screenshot is from? ; 3
Lets start the day off with some delicious ramen (mine is the third and least colourful one orz)
We took a detour to walk over some nice looking bridges
Pro bus ad
The other bridge was red
Just the streets of Azakusa
The famous Sensoji temple
The stalls are full of tourist traps, but whatever xD
I bit it’s head off first
We sidetracked a bit into the side malls
There was a huge lineup for delicious shaved ice… this ain’t crappy American quality carnival shaved ice either, this is the real stuff!
Silly gaijins, spilling stuff all over the place already!
Taking a group picture with the students that pointed us to the shaved ice
The very FIRST and ONLY public garbage can I’ve spotted that is NOT in front of a 7/11 or Family Mart
More temple pics
Drawing omikuji (fortunes)
0.5/3. I quit.
Tied up all three
Burn some incents and inhale the cancer-inducing fumes
Cleanse your hands with some holy water
In case Reimu hasn’t taught you anything, you throw money in the box and magical stuff like wish granting happens (or so they say)
The inside of the temple is pretty shiny
Beautiful ladies in kimonos
Food stalls, no gold fish catching stall this time though ;'(
Side mall again
This guy did some really cool magic tricks – gave him all my change (which was a lot, considering I had a few 500 yen coins)
Bought a kitsune mask, couldn’t figure out how they wear it sideways in anime though
Takoyaki, and taking pictures of gaijin taking pictures of takoyaki
Stay tuned for more
Japan Akihabara goodness!
