I'm a big 携帯電話 (cellphone) fan! Check them out! Ginza! A street corner in Ginza. On the streets roam cars and cool looking people. The newest gas/electric hybrid car, by Nissan I think More of Ginza!

The Temple

The main gate to the inner Sensoji temple The Sensoji Temple. It is of simpler design then the gates, ne? The pagoda to the right of the temple. I try out the famous incense burner in front of Sensoji

Finally, the main entrance to the temple. I try out the おみくじ (omikuji). I got a good fortune. A fountain near the temple Pagoda view from temple entrance

A statue of The Kannon, but not yet sure, ごめん The Kannon and another diety A section of the area where mothers and schoolchildren are having an outing
