Yesterday after class, I met up with Shun to hangout for the day. He decided for us to go to Asakusa, which is apparently a very touristy place in Japan. After going, I confirm that.
In the area that we went through, there were vendors selling typical souvenirs. Lots of keychains, sweets, shoes, masks, etc. COLORS EVERYWHERE.
I think I'd like to go back though and explore more of the area besides the shops.
But these pink and blue chocolate covered bananas with a Koala March cookie on them looked pretty awesome. I wish I could send these instead. Sorry about the sun. I'm saying that to the bananas because now they have to worry about melting.
I'm sure you've seen pictures like these in much better quality. But I bet you didn't see them at wonky angles taken on an ipod before. AWwWwWw YeAaAaHhhh!
Going into the temple:
On the ceiling:
Nah, just kidding. XD
I'm not sure what the name of these are, but it was like the other one where you pour water on your hands.
People who received bad fortunes tie them on this and say a prayer that would pretty much consist of "Say it ain't so."
Shun had to end the day early because his mom was sick and he wanted to go home to take care of his mum and things around his house. I'm wondering if I scared him away though because he asked what time I wanted to get back by when we first met up and I said 7 or 8 and he said okay. Then, he randomly brought up needing to go home. We also went through the same place 3 times instead of exploring the area. I feel like he didn't know what to do and was really nervous. Or I just scared him. Probably that.
He did buy me and his mum some ningyoyaki. They're small cakes that taste like pound cake with bean paste in them. So it's kinda like mochi with pound cake instead of bread.
Another thing that reminds me of Animal Crossing is this here sign that says that there's going to be a Halloween Party in town. Where is Tortimer? I need to hit him with a bug net out of pure excitement and then receive an hour long lecture about life.
Sometimes, I just want to buy this...
Today, I'm going to the gym, studying, and later hanging out with Yuuki! He has an English speaking test on Sunday and I'm going to help him by talking with him. What a challenge for me.
Sometimes, I feel like I confuse non-native English speakers
I'm going to end this post abruptly.
