New Year 2016 Adventure (Part 2) / 2016正月の冒険 (パート2)

Continuing our New Year's Holiday adventures with our friends, after paying our respects at Kamishin Meitenso Jinja, we walked to Togoshi Ginza where we had lunch at some yakiton shop called Asa-chan.


As we were walking to Togoshi Ginza, we came across one of Japan's disappearing traditions - the public bathhouse.


Lunch time at Asa-chan.


Cabbage tower / キャベツのタワー

And a Sky Tree beer to wash it all down.


After our hearty lunch we decided to head towards Zojoji Temple near the Tokyo Tower.
