More adventures

While my parents were here we took them to a bunch of awesome places.

We went to the Open Air Museum in Hakone, one of my favorite places in Japan.

This is Van Gogh.

I may have liked it a little bit, what do you think?IMG_5247 IMG_5241 IMG_5240 IMG_5238 IMG_5236 IMG_5233We went out to the Tsukiji Fish Market, but we got there late in the day, so we explored the areas around it instead.  We found this cool temple. IMG_5215 IMG_5213 IMG_5212Tuna.IMG_5211We also stumbled across the Tsukiji Hongwanji Temple.

The models are really detailed and really expensive.IMG_5178Kappabashi is the restaurant supply district, there are stores with anything you might possibly need for a restaurant.IMG_5176 IMG_5175This building is just cool.IMG_5169We went to Senso-ji Temple in Asakusa, and while we were there we met two women who work at Disneyland. When we asked what they did there, they glanced quickly at the girls and then explained that one of them is “friends” with Jasmine, Pocahontas, and Esmerelda, and the other is “friends” with Tinkerbell and Alice. They were such sweet girls, and told us to keep an eye out for them the next time we go to Disneyland.IMG_5168 IMG_5154 IMG_5152 IMG_5151 IMG_5150 IMG_5146 IMG_5144 IMG_5143 IMG_5142 IMG_5135
