In Tokyo there are many things to see but this trip we just went to the market, temple; after another train ride you can get to Tokyo Tower and Hard Rock Cafe.
We first entered through the Hozomon, notable for a giant straw sandals – would hate to see the person who wore them! lol Then through the Nakamise shopping arcade area to get to the Asakusa Kannon or Sensoji Temple this is the tall five layered temple. We then left through the Kaminarimon or "Thunder Gate" a very large gate. There are many temples in this area and I am not sure what is what in some of the photos, but it is a great place to visit. While in this area I saw a Japanese man reading his newspaper so I took photos, the Japanese gals I was with just laughed and asked why I took those photos…ok if I was in Texas and just took a photo of a man reading his newspaper I guess I would understand…LOL
Then taking the train to the Hard Rock Cafe area, notice on the train photos, one has a man with a white mask on.
Hard Rock Cafe - In its heyday, Harajuku Park was the place for closet rockers to be seen in the late 1990's. Elvis impersonators and doo-wop pretenders would enchant the local populace on the weekends throughout these gorgeous environs. Now that the action has dropped off quite a bit in the new millennium, you can always find the true spirit of rock 'n' roll at the Hard Rock Cafe Tokyo. Stocked with enough memorabilia to fill a Sumo hall, both floors of our restaurant bop all day long to the sounds of rock. The enticing scents and tastes of our delectable menu items are enough to entice the giant King Kong figure hanging on the side of our restaurant to smash his way inside for a hearty helping. Let the music electrify you and the meals satisfy you at the Hard Rock Cafe Tokyo.
Earlier that day we went to Calvary Chapel is Japan’s largest Christian church (1,000 members) I just took one photo and flash off so not to disturb the service and it is a bit blurry, very nice church!
