Monday was National Sports Day here in Japan, so both The Cuties and my husband were on vacation. It had been a while since we’d done something from one of our guidebooks, so we decided to head to Asakusa and check out Senso-ji, which is Tokyo’s oldest Buddhist Temple.
Apparently, since it was a National holiday and so many other places were closed, most of Tokyo had the same idea. But it was a beautiful day and worth braving the crowds to walk around and explore both the Temple and Kaminarimon, the large gate at the entrance.
I’m especially glad we spent Monday outside since today was rainy and chilly. By evening, the rain and winds had picked up so much and we have a typhoon warning with an expectation of winds up to 100 mph! So school has already been cancelled and The Cuties will be home yet again tomorrow.
Gotta love early fall in Japan!
