A very famous site from Japan. It was fun to see it really early in the morning and beat the crowds.
The Gods of Thunder and Wind stand in each side of the giant red lantern, unfortunately, I only took a pic of the Thunder God
There is a video file here: http://pics.livejournal.com/ayonoi/p
A closer view of the entrance of the Sensouji temple
I am standing in one of the side entrances of the temple
Sexy chuck XD standing at the same entrance
The Asakusa Shrine
The inside of the Shrine. Note the two warriors seated at the sides.
Koi pond and traditional bridge
I am not sure about the name of this shrine. It houses the Bosatsu that protect all the animals of the Zodiac. I checked out my Bosatsu and he was not fancy, pretty low-key kind of guy XD
Drangon God statue outside Sensoji Temple and in the cleaning well. You are supposed to clean your hands here before you go into the temple. The ceiling is also decorated with a dragon. This is another shot of the statue:
Orochimaru...even at the senbei shop XD. Umm, yeah, we saw the heaven seal everywhere in the temple ground shops. We were amused XD
Trying to walk on this sori would probably make you fall. Strangely, I thought about Alex's fic here (Yountilla) and thought of Orochimaru walking on them draggin Naruto by the his kimono. I loved it.
Another god behind the Kaminarimon Gate
Awesome DeathNote poster at Comics Torenoana (or was that K-Books???) We wanted to steal it XD.
Chuck takes a bite of our mini Christmas cake (we bought a variety). The picture does not come up so I just put the link (you know u want to click on it XD)
A view of our cakes!
Pictures now will go with each entry as I make them. It took me longer than expected to load the pics and write this entry so I ran out of time to write the Harajuku adventure. I will try to get it done by Tuesday. Enjoy the pics guys!
