Japan!: Asakusa during a festival

To begin, this building is not in Asakusa, it’s in Ginza, but isn’t it pretty?

Anyway, enough of that. Yesterday we took a couple of B’s co-workers who were in town for business to Asakusa to look around. We did not realize that there was a festival going on, which only made it cooler.

On the way, we took Zoe’s train. She was very excited since we don’t usually go on her line. The other train on this sign is Bruce and Tiny’s (D for Daddy, T for Tiny). Tiny also has her own line- TY the Tokyo Toyoko line, and I have the M line- and I can’t remember which one that is right now. Obviously we don’t go on it very often.

The guys wanted to go into the temple and Tiny didn’t, so she and I sat outside taking pictures of ourselves.

And things around us.

Then we all went and explored all the lovely food stalls. The girls got shaved ice.
