We walked around Asakusa especially Sensoji area in sunny day. There are a lot of foreigners. They enjoyed Asakusa on their way.

At first, I took a photograph in front of Kaminari-mon gate that is famous for the flagship of Tokyo tour. Fujin and Raijin stand inside of the gate to pray for peace of Asakusa.

This is the traditional way to cook "Ningyo-yaki". The small cake is made by cooking batter of flour, eggs and sugar in an iron mold that looks like a doll ("Ningyo" means doll in Japanese).
