A day at Asakusa/Une jourée à Asakusa

Today we left for Asakusa a little before noon. We were lucky, there was some kind of food festival going on. There was a bunch of little kiosks selling misc food for an average of 200 yen (about $2).

We went around the temple grounds for a bit, looking at the temple and surrounding shrines. There is also a lot of "gift shops" that we managed to browse thru for a while as well. Then we decided to walk outside the "tourist" district. 

We ended up on a shopping street that mainly sell kitchen goods. In our way back we discovered a really good/old looking building. We managed to get back to Kashiwa around 7PM.

Aujourd'hui nous sommes partit pour Asakusa un peu avant midi. Nous avons été chanceux, il y avait une sorte de festival culinaire. Il y avait plein de petit kiosque qui vendaient diverse sorte de nouriture à une moyenne de 200 yen (environ 2$).

Nous nous sommes promené sur le terrain du temple et avons observé le temple et les quelques hotels qui l'entour. Nous avons aussi fait le tour des nombreuses "boutiques" qui entour le temple. Ensuite nous avons décidé de prendre une marche en dehors du "quartier touristiques".

On c'est retrouvé sur une rue commercial qui vendait surtout des articles de cuisine. Sur le chemin du retour nous avons découvert un jolie batiment qui avait l'air très vieux. Nous sommes arrivé à Kashiwa vers 19:00.

The incense is to cleanse the body before entering the temple.

Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?
