Rickshaws and Temples

Our first full day in Tokyo, we spent walking around the Asakusa District. 

This section of the city is representative of the Edo period in Japanese history. Here, there are traditional old stores, crowds of people around temples, winding narrow roads, craftsman, kabuki, and rickshaws.

There was loads to see here and we captured it all on video. Hop on the rickshaw with us!

There's lots more to say about this day. Of course, now I also have to do a product review of the nightingale droppings, so stay tuned for that. But alas, other duties call...

In any case, I absolutely love the festive atmosphere in this part of Tokyo. What's your favorite part of any big city wherever you are?

The Marilyn Monroe and Elton John Monchichis were hillarious! I am SO hoping that you didn't really use the Nightingale Mask!

I might have to do a tutorial and you can be the model!

That looks more like a luxury rickshaw. Antigua, Guatemala recently, well like 3 years ago, came out with tuk tuks. they all look like they are on their last legs:)

you're right about the rickshaws...we can't really complain about them. it was such fun to ride around in it and imagine ourselves in days past.
