Ride to Asakusa

paper cranes from a random temple somewhere in eastern tokyo. is that a chinese crane or just a coincidence that its red with a gold star.

first no skateboarding sign ive seen or at least noticed cuz i was able to read wat it says cuz there is a big cartoon with a red x through it.

tons of bridges going over the sumidagawa river in east tokyo, at least 20 i counted on the map.

also tons of crazy snaking highways and land bridges so that means lots of tokyo lives works and plays under bridges, and expressways. tons of playgrounds are under bridges, and lots of cool drinking and restaurant areas are under bridges and train tracks.

that green walkway looped around like crazy

nakamise dori that leads up to senso ji temple at asakusa sells traditional japanese stuff.

what are these things? I've seen them before, my roomate said they are the dog from the old japanese peachboy story but i can't find any more info.

Senso Ji. didn't go inside cuz ive been there before and will have to go again with visitors so i want to keep some of the magic alive

December 8th and trees still have citrus fruits on them

the 7 lucky gods in japanese culture. Ebisu is one of them and he is the only japanese one

street off of nakamise dori, less crazy

these graphics are awesome and its even more awesome that its not on purpose

are those long japanese radishes in front of this restaurant ?

see that ball on top of doraemon's head? thats my head, and thats wat happens when you hang out by yourself and you have to set timers and take bad shots over again, you just don't see the point in doing it anymore

pig at a korean restaurant that blows steam out of his nose. all along the JR line underneath the tracks around shimbashi and yurakacho and ginza are tons of cool looking restaurants, stores, and drinking places. This area is underrated.

Nice way to emphasize the tradition & culture of japan. from this post we can also get decent information about Japanese markets, shopping Malls as well. However it is impressive post, which also impress me as well
