Let's take a look at the more traditional days I spent in Tokyo ♥
Well to be honest I only spent about...uhm...let's say about 2 hours in Asakusa~
buuuut~ it was worth it!
& I have to admit...I imagined Asakusa to be different. A lot.
I thought it would be a whole area in traditional style ...like stuffed with old houses & a lot of shrines and so on.
But...right when I left the station...Tokyo was looking the same as always.
I was like "Wtf...? This is Asakusa? Did I choose the wrong exit?"
But no, I was at the right exit.
I just had to turn right, walk down the street and then there it was:
A pretty crowded street, beginning with Kaminarimon (photo below)...& filled with tourists & trashy shops.
Ugh...ok, let's go.
Ice Cream Shop!!!!!
Most of you probably heard about the strange Japanese ice cream flavours before...
Well, this is the shop I heard about the most...(*____*)
They offered rose-flavour and so on...I chose Sweet Potatoe (*____*)
& it was amazing!!!!! I want to eat it again!!
It was just like I would bite into a real -ice cold- sweet potatoe ♥
Trashy Shop again
& last but not least: a Kimono / Yukata shop!
...but I don't think they offer good quality Kimono....
this street is made for tourists & their view of Japan.
There'll be a 2nd & 3rd part ♥
so stay tuned ♥
