Due to the room had not ready yet for us to check in, therefore we plan to shop as our itinerary for the remaining days will be very tight.
Asakusa Nakamise is a lively shopping street lined up with small shops selling enormous selection of traditional local snacks such as rice biscuits, instance red bean cakes, edible seaweed and a huge array of sourvenirs including kimono, T-shirts, keychain, cell-phone straps, fans, toys and etc. During our way to there, we were almost lost. But thanks to the courtesy of Japanese, we finally made it.
Strange huge icon located besides tall building. Does it looks like bull's horn or otherwise?
