212 THINGS, DESTINATIONS, Japan

TO SEE :: DECORATED Sensō-ji ROLLER SHUTTERS :: TOKYO

We were enjoying the late afternoon at Sensō-Ji  Temple eating street food and looking through all the souvenir shops and we noticed that as the shops closed their doors for the day, and pulling down their roller shutters, that the streets began to fill with art depicting Japan’s historical lifestyle.  The paintings were of geishas applying their makeup, a samurai resting in a garden, men painting, warriors drawing their swords, a woman in a kimono sitting with a cat, and so many more. There were beautiful sceneries of sakura blossoms and Mount Fiji, and walking through the shopping street suddenly felt as if we were in an ancient art gallery.  So if you are already at Sensō-Ji, why not stay as the sun begins to set for a complimentary self-guided walking tour of Japan’s rich and artistic history?
