While my parents were here we went to a bunch of different places.
We went to the Shrine of the 47 Ronin:
My dad acted out the story for the girls- this is the well where they washed the head of Kira Yoshinaka before laying it on Asano Naganori’s grave (which is in this cemetery complex).The girls are so sad that the polar bears are so sad. The polar bears are so sad because of the environment. This is in Odaiba.Also in Odaiba is Legoland. It’s much smaller than other Legolands, but the girls had a great time.
Godzilla over Shibuya. (The buildings are right- we walk past that 109 building all the time.)We also went to the Edo-Tokyo Museum, which is incredible. It’s full of dioramas of the history of Tokyo, which you can either walk through or that are in miniature.
The girls are in front of a massive kumade, which is a symbol of good fortune.The following three vests are what students would wear if Harry Potter took place in Japan.They’re trying to steal the gold.“Female knowledge in a new era”“A notebook used in a foreign style dressmaking school”
We went to the giant Buddha (Diebutsu) in Kamakura.Our friend Kaoru came too.
