Pretty oasis of calm a short ferry ride away from Asakusa. Picture 1 by The BBG. Pictures 3 and 4 depict the Duck Mound - at one point the gardens were used for duck hunting, and the mound is a small shrine in their honour so that the current inhabitants aren't attacked by vengeful zombie ducks. Or something.
Various photos by The BBG. The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift was on the verge of release while we were over there.
Ultra-posh Tokyo shopping mall.
Actual warning image displayed on the Tokyo underground.
Specifically the area around Jingu-bashi bridge, where every Sunday afternoon young people dress up to frighten the oldsters and delight the tourists (and, probably, the pervs too). Picture 2 by The BBG.
Spiffy museum dedicated to the works of Studio Ghibli, the Japanese animation studio responsible for Spirited Away and other classics (picture by The BBG). The second picture shows the special bus that takes you to the museum from the station - Totoro fans will be disappointed that it's not a gigantic hollowed-out cat, but you can't have everything.
As previous entry, but lighter. Pictures 1 and 3 by The Belated Birthday Girl.
The rather lovely temple, which is the main reason why people visit Asakusa.
