Spot Skytree (that tallest building!)

Because this place is near Skytree, so the shops by the roadside are selling biscuits/cookies related to Skytree.
The famous Asakusa Nakamise Shopping Street.
This very famous picture-taking place! 

Green tea. Very nice green tea in one of the shops on the shopping street. 
(don't you think... even a cup of simple green tea on a table, by the roadside, is so beautiful? wtf, find me something that is not nice in Japan please)
Oh, and did I say, all the pictures on my Tokyo trip are taken by my iphone4s. Thank you pretty phone, thank you for working at your very best to bring us good pictures! 

OMG Senbei! They are making and BBQing Senbei on the spot!!

Redbean pancake! I got a box of these to give to the colleagues in office.
Food street outside the temple. 

Magnificent. Beautiful. 

There is this ''well', many people are crowding around here, some are drinking the well water, some are washing their hands and feet. So.. What do I do? 
This is the correct method apparantly. LOL. 
I patiently waited and washed my hands lol! 
Then I threw all my coins in..
Then I go around praying.

Oh, and according to the nice lady from the travel agent, she mentioned this is one of the must-go (for tourists) places. Indeed there are a lot of tourists. 

Huge place!

After walking a while, I saw this group of people here.. They are doing the scooping air action and then bring it to their body, head, everywhere on them la. So I walk over & did the same. 
WTF monkey see, monkey do. 
What is in the pot.
Stopped by this stall selling 5 Yakitori for Y$500 SGD$7.95 which is very cheap. 

After that I saw a stall selling 1 yakitori for the same price! 

This street just reminds me of Crayon Shinchan. LOL! I don't know why.
Anyway, I want to snap that ''carpark''. Cool, space saving car parking system!

My brother sure love this. LOL He only eat the tamago & cucumber sushis. Why his sister (me) is a Japanese food-siao(crazy)?
Found Gindaco too! 
Next up: SkyTree!! 

Thank you Japan once again. Thank you for being beautiful. (I have said millions of thanks)
Thanking is never enough,
