Asakusa and Hamarikyu

Filed under: — Andy @ 9:28 pm

I met with Mr. Hara again. He treated me to as special lunch of "Mugi-toro” at the only restaurant of its kind in Tokyo. After that, we went around to some of the not so famous areas of Asakusa including the 7 good luck shrines and a famous "Sakura Motchi” shop. Then we took a boat ride down the Sumida river to Hamarikyu. One of the most famous Japanese gardens in Tokyo, the Cosmos flowers were starting to bloom.

Mugi-toro. Slimy but very delicious.

Tokyo style sakura mochi, a bit different than western Japan.

Bridges on the river Sumidagawa.

Cosmos at Hamarikyu gardens.

Lastly, we had sweets and matcha at the tea house on the lake.
