Here are somd pics from Tuesday, when we went to Asakusa Temple and then on to the Roppongi Hills.  First, the story of the temple; then some pictures from our visit & stroll in the neighborhood, and finally our visit to Roppongi Hills (not “hills” so much as “skyscraper on a hill, with a viewing deck”).

The next day, our last, Aingeal & I went to a museum.

The Senso-ji (Asakusa kannon Temple) Story

These were displayed on the pedestrianized street leading up to the temple proper.  The street itself is mostly given over to souvenir stalls & shops, selling some kitsch, perhaps, but authentic kitsch.
