Strolling Around Asakusa
Tokyo, to me, is one of those semi-home cities. I'm here at least twice a year, but somehow I still feel like there's so much unmapped territories to explore.
This is the first post I got for you from Tokyo- a few shots from my stroll around Asakusa, in which is surprisingly...a lot. I thought I will be extremely tired, since I basically had no idea which time zone I’m in during most of the trip (You see, I only gave myself two days to cure that London jet lag, before I hop on the plane again). But despite my exhausting body, my mind is sooo excited during those five days. To be honest, I kinda miss the Asian vibe some how, or is it just my Japanese food taste buds talking?
I'm a strong believer that when it comes to cities, exploring a city you've been to is just equally important as visiting new ones. Asakusa, I’ve been here countless times, but this place never gets old.
Most people love to see Asakusa as the unmissable travel destination of Tokyo, but for me, the charm of this place far passes these touristy moments (where you have to squeeze yourself through the crowd towards temple). Blue skies and red buildings, the beauty of contrasting colours is always something that catches my eyes whenever I'm here. It doesn't matter how crowded this place gets, my heart still gets steal away to the rich Japanese culture every single time. Clean streets, friendly and polite people, and not to mention the delicious traditional rice cake dessert. Well, well, all good memories.
Anyways, I’m off for now, of course, I will be working on a few longer posts, introducing my favourite spots of this city. Stay tuned. :)
