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
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 :)
