This day: A walk in Tokyo - more specifically a walk around Asakusa.
Everyone visits the Senso-ji temple in Asakusa. I think it's mandatory for every citizen of Japan as well as every foreign visitor.
It's more than just a temple visit, it's an experience. The temple is surrounded with shops, restaurants, entertainment... you name it, it's there.
There's something in the air here. People smile and dance with delight!
Well, maybe not everyone is enthralled with a smile on their face, some are transfixed!
Senso-ji temple is a great place to casually mill about.
The incense smoke is good for what ails you.
I think tourists are great! It's fun to see people discovering Japan.
Hmmm... some tourists are more interesting than others.
Passing by some locals as we explore the back alleys of Asakusa.
What better way is there to enjoy a Sunday in Asakusa than to dress up in traditional kimono.
Uh oh...I smell whisky (this one's for you Ken) and where there's whisky, there's soon to be a party!
Yep, there's a party all right.
Cheers! Good times for everybody! I'll drink to that!
And, here we are.
My new best friend.
After a few drinks and some good food we're back out and about checking out the sights.
Last shot of this day: There is no shortage of rickshaws in Asakusa.
That day: A day in Yokohama!
Where there is a bus stop...
...soon there's a bus!
Some of the best people watching in Yokohama is at Osanbashi pier.
A view of the Yokohama Bay Bridge from the pier.
There's a ship in port today, and it's a big one!
Osanbashi pier is the cool hip place to be. The best part is that it's free. Smile for the camera!
Come one, come all, bring the family too!
The original "Pay for view" system.
The sun's getting a little hot out here.
Time to move on.
This girl shot by me on her bike and I quickly took her picture. Luckily it was in focus and then when I zoomed in on the image I noticed that her earring was a dangling spider and the second pierced earring is a small spider web. (Click on the picture to enlarge for a better view).
We're all having a good day today.
I always appreciate a park bench with a view.
Sharing the shade.
Yokohama has the best motorcycle gangs.
Maybe it's time to get a Thai massage.
Last shot of "That day". When one sees a woman barreling toward you on a bicycle built for three, the prudent thing to do is to get the heck out of her way!
Thanks for stopping by!
