Asakusa, Tokyo

@

This is the Sensoji temple in Asakusa.  I highly recommend it.  On the outside of the 
gate is a market with souvenirs and food.  It has quite a carnival atmosphere.  
The dancing midgets were a little much, though.

During festivals the inside is open to the public.  There is a large statue of a 
Buddha with some golden palm trees or plants or something.  You can throw change 
into the big offering pit over everyone's heads.

These photos were taken in July, 2000.  That's Shibuya at nighttime, and Shinjuku in the day.  
The last is called the 'Super Big Building'.  Really, I read it on a postcard.
