My Boyfriend has always known that every time I come to Japan with Friends, that I will usually stay in Asakusa. It's cheaper than finding a place, say in the middle of Tokyo, plus the area of Asakusa is amazingly beautiful too! There are multiple things within walking distance of one another, so you don't spend much money on transport at all!
So during a holiday, we decided to go to Asakusa for the day! We first headed to Sensoji (浅草寺). Which is also known commonly as "Asakusa Kannon Temple". I thought that because my Boyfriend is Japanese, that he'd just shrug off the temple, having seen probably many in his lifetime anyway? But he was actually amazed and took plenty of photos to remember the day. We went for conveyor belt sushi, or くるくる寿司! Haha. It's delicious and my Boyfriend introduced me to engawa sushi previously and it's so tasty! I really recommend it for people who wanna try something different but are not too daring to try ika or tako.
I have continuously pointed out to him during my stays "Look! Tokyo Sky tree!" when watching TV. So now seeing it in person (in the distance) was even more surreal for him. So we decided to walk our way there. Mainly because we wanted to see more, and our feet weren't hurting yet. It was a pretty easy walk to be honest - so if anyone tells you to use public transport, don't! If you can see the tower, just keep walking towards it! It is not hard to miss.
The Tokyo Sky Tree is absolutely amazing inside, much like other tower views I seem to have a habit of visiting while in Japan? Sunshine City? Yokohama Sky Garden? Now Tokyo Sky Tree. Surprisingly, I have never visited Tokyo Tower, yet. I will write another blog at a later date with more photos from up inside Tokyo Tower.
