Rain rain rain. We are still in the rainy season, and it's raing on anf off today.
Annoyed by rain while traveling??
Then, let's have fun together!
This is how we started planning this tour.
Today, we held...
"OKONOMIYAKI Party and FESTIVAL HOPPING Tour"!
10 of our guests joined us. 4 guys from Denmark, 2 ladies from Australia, a couple from Portugul, a guy from Taiwan and a guy from US.
Carefully flipping a one-side-baked okonomiyaki Careful careful..
Looks ok, right? Now, it't your turn.
Two pieces of okonomiyaki each made us so full that we almost ended up spending the rest of the day by chatting at the hostel.
But nop, we are heading to the tour!
This week's tour theme is "FESTIVAL HOPPING".
We went to see the Tanabata Festival (Star Festival) taking place around Kappabashi street in Asakusa, first.
and hopped from this festival to another one, Asagao Festival (Morning Glory Market) around Iriya.
A hundred of morning glory (flower) vendors line on one street around Kishimojin temple.
It's said that around 400,000 people visit this festival each year to enjoy seeing and buying beautiful pots of morning glories.
We stopped by the Kishimojin temple as well.
Bought some sweets (kibi dango) from a cute lady at the temple who never stopped talking to us (in Japanese).
I hope this little tour helped everybody take a quick look of lthe local atmosphere which their guidebooks probably wouldn't guide them to!
Coming to Tokyo?! Then, why not joing our next local tours!
