Asakusa Japan

Tokyo Asakusa Shrine

Asakusa Shrine

People wave the smoke all over their bodies. It's sacred smoke and heals the body.

Omiyage Shops line the walk at Asakusa Shrine

There are tons of little gift shops all the way up and down the strip from the street to the
Temple. You can get most anything along the lines of little Japan-ish trinkets here.
