Asakusa Gate

Here we are standing under the Asakusa Temple gate. Asakusa is famous for the shopping and dining district that has grown up around the main streets leading to the temple. We spent the late afternoon walking around the area, visiting shops and sampling noodles.

We also visited the temple itself, where we purchased a talisman to protect our home.
