Sunday I went to Asakusa temple located in Tokyo.  It is one of the largest temples in Japan as well as one of the most popular.  It was pretty cold out, but it was still a nice experience.  I ate a few different foods I have never had as well as bought some souvenirs.  Anyways on to the pictures!

Walking up to the entrance


Entrance



When you first walk in it is a long street cover with small shops and tons of people


This is a Green tea flavored sweet bread fried bread with sweet bean paste inside.. It was delicious <3


Closer to the temple itself


Picture above from behind



The actual prayer building


The incense pot where everyone breathes the incense and pulls the smoke onto their heads and bodies in hopes of good health and fortune.


The gold area in the center is where you stand and say your prayers



Takoyaki!  Of course I got my order I love me some takoyaki <3<3<3


Then once I got back to Yokosuka it was snowing.. Quite surprising but it was nice and not too freezing cold :)
