A nice lady in a café marked our coffee mugs with a friendly “Welcom to Asakusa“ und “Enjoy in Japan” – yeah! So we walked down the Nakamise-dori-Street. It’s an outdoor shopping arcade with a roof and you can get nearly everything there. Cute stamps, hairpins and – of course – waving cats. Moreover a cloud of pasta, curry, chicken and tons of spices was hanging in the air. Some Japanese people were scanning us detailed and reserved with their eyes at the same time. We still don’t know how they manage to do that in a high professional way.
In the evening when the moon was lying between some light clouds we made our way to Shinjuku. We booked a Night Walking Tour. That’s something I did a couple of times in the US and I simply love it. You are guided by a local and get to know all the secrets and treasures of a district you would have never found without him. How to describe Shinjuku? Well, it’s a huge burrow where thousands of ants are dancing on LSD while listening to David Guetta.
