As you can imagine, we were pretty hung over on Sunday. We started our day at 1 or 2 in the afternoon. We met up with Yukiko for coffee. It was rainy and it was getting late so, we decided to go to the famous temple in Asakusa, Senso-ji.
Senso-ji’s southern entrace has a huge gate with a gigantic red paper lantern. After you enter through the gate, the long walkway leading towards the temple is packed with colorful souvenir shops. Within the grounds of the temple, there’s a beautiful pagoda, a really big bronze incense pot and some statues and other buildings.
Asakusa is an old area of Tokyo with many old shops and restaurants. We walked around the back streets for an hour and stopped in a restaurant for some comfort food, sukiyaki. We hung out for a couple of hours eating and drinking saki and beer.
