Asakusa is fascinating and popular among foreign people.

This is Kaminari-Mon (Gate of Thunder?) which is symbol of Asakusa.
Everybody takes a picture in front of there.

Good smile. She responded to foreigner's cheer.
She was popular at this time because she was so cute and it was rare to see a girl wearing Kimono.

The thing which she has is Omikuji (paper fortune).

We draw it and tie it to a branch or a bar and so on.

The thing which she has is Bangasa (coarse oilpaper umbrella).
Nowadays nobody uses Bangasa.

There are many traditional shops in Asakusa.
You can enjoy traditional Japan.

    Thank you for your kind comment!
    It is the first comment on my blog.
    I want to see you wearing a Kimono someday.

  3. The last photo is especially great. The composition, with a sharp focus on her face, the shallow depth of field is lovely.
