These are photos from my day at Asakusa Sensouji Temple 「浅草浅草寺」 with my good friend Yuka. [very image heavy!] It was such a great time, she even got us a jinrickshaw ride around the grounds! The runner was this really nice guy that insisted I say something to him in Japanese, but all I could think of was to sing "Linda Linda" by the Blue Hearts. Scored some points, so it was cool.
三間月 前ぐらい、友達のゆかちゃん と 浅草の有名な もんじゃで ひるごはんを 食べました。
お好み焼き と もんじゃ焼き を 作りました！ほんとうに 楽しかったよ！
You had to wash your hands before going into the temple, and of course, being dumb I poured the clean water over my hands back into the pure water section.
さる！ This poor monkey worked a longer day than I do.
ゆかちゃん！ We split some choco-bananas on a stick
Making fried azuki bean buns! 揚物！「あげもの」
We ate lunch at a really great monjayaki place! The guide told us it was the best and really famous, so we had to try it. My first time making monjayaki and okonomiyaki, and it was so stellar...
fresh senbei crackers!
Those girls were so pretty in their kimonos 「 to the left 」
sweet potato ice cream! ソーフト クレーム [soft cream] It was amazing...
Happy Year of the Rabbit!
