Lost in Translation: Sensō-ji
So after we got home we watch Lost in Translation. Great movie. Lots of the same feels in that movie when you go to another country. But the thing is in the movie they don’t make the best of their time there. Well until the part where they meet up and go out for the night. That’s what I think. The best thing is getting lost. That’s where the adventure lies… I wandered off to the next neighborhood from my hotel while Chad took a nap. I had enough yen to get there but I didn’t have enough for the train back. I also couldn’t find an ATM where my card would work to get more yen. So I decided to walk back to the hotel. Then it started to rain. Awesome. It was a fun 30 minute walk in the rain and dark. Tokyo doesn’t have as many street lights as Korea. But I did get some great pictures at the Sensō-ji.
This was the one non-geeky thing I did on the trip. This is Sensō-ji Main Hall. It is an ancient Buddhist temple located in Asakusa, Taitō, Tokyo. It is Tokyo’s oldest temple, and one of its most significant. But you can read more about it on the Wikipedia page here.
