A Walk around Koedo Kawagoe (Part 2) / 小江戸川越の散歩 (パート2)

As we were walking towards Kashiya Yokocho (Candy Alley), some strange art work caught our eye.  A sign introducing the artist said all the pieces were made out of styrofoam.

Yes, these are snacks!  Really large ones too.  I think we bought one the last time we came here but they weren't all that delicious.  Just a novelty snack.

Only 400yen for 100,000,000yen note!

Look!  More styrofoam art work!


These carp are not made of styrofoam - they are real.


This was my favorite styrofoam art pice, a chameleon on a large five yen coin.


Senbei (rice cracker) shop / せんべいの店
One Coedo Beniaka Beer before heading home.
I also bought a set of the other craft beers to take home - Shikkoku, Kyara, Ruri, and Shiro.
他の味のCoedo地ビールは買って持ち帰った。Shikkoku, Kyara、Ruri,とShiro.
Created this on my cell phone after getting home.  That's us eating senbei up top, cha soba for lunch, me drinking a Coedo beer with an ice cream and Mikako at Kita-in Temple.
And so ended our date.  I hope you have been enjoying these short neighborhood walking day trips.  One of our next date spots is going to be Koganei where the Edo-Tokyo Open-air Architectural Museum is located.  We have been there before but thought it would be nice to go walking around there again.
