Asakusa Temples in Tokyo

Senso-ji Temple in Asakusa

It's rainy season here in Japan. A switch turned in the middle of June and it started to incessantly pour everyday. It's gray, sticky hot and wet. Makes you want to stay in all day under the air conditioning, but we forced ourselves to do a little sightseeing in Tokyo with Edita. These are the famous temples of Asakusa. The arcade leading up to the temples is filled with shops, one of which is a homemade o-senbei shop (Japanese rice crackers) that sells over 100 different flavors of senbei. I know what some of you are getting when I plop down in Oregon this summer!
