Last of 2010 in Asakusa
I’ve finally gotten to my post post on Tokyo. This is also the last post from 2010. The number of posts for this Tokyo trip post is almost as long as the Silk Road one. But to summarize, I think new year in… (continue reading…)
終於來到了東京的最後一篇, 也是 2010 相關的最後一篇. (終於啊….!) 這次部落格馬拉松長度和走絲路的那次有得拼, 拼到現在我要把它拉拔成一本書都是要花很多時間, 話說那本我 Draft 1 都還不到, 但今年上半年一定要 close! 在東京過新年, 算是我有始以來覺得新年氣氛最濃厚的…
… 一次, 從聖誕節的燈飾開始, 到新年百貨公司, 年貨大街大家採買年貨, 到寺廟拜拜等等 (除了 count down 以外 ), 這算是一個很特別的過新年的一次.
…. Tokyo was quite a remarkable experience. There was so much to see and so many things to do. We were there for a bit more than a week. But days just flew by. New year in Tokyo really has that “new year” feel (maybe except the count down part). From Christmas to New Year break, it was so festive and memorable.
The different karts on the street outside of the main temple in Asakusa.
The gate leading to the temple.
Whole street selling all kinds of Japanese snacks and souvenir.
The street of Asakusa is filled with people prepared to celebrate the new year.
So this means the streets can be quite crowded as well.
In the main pavilion of the temple looking at the streets filled with people.
The streets are filled with people making these snacks.
A quieter corner.
其他看起來很 cute 的東西.
Other fun stuff to look at.
This octopus is waving 2 fans saying will succeed and will pass (exam-related).
These ninjas are so cute too. But don’t think I’d carry one around. :p
街上也有穿上和服逛大街的人, 想必 1/1 會更多.
There were already people wearing kimono going to the temple. There’d probably be more on January 1st.
新年來寺廟就是要來抽個籤, 這次很開心能抽到大吉, 而且是一張我看到就很想大笑的籤, 所以接下來的一年, 遇到甚麼不順的事, 拿出那張籤就可以再來大笑一回. 明天會更好啦！
Mikuji – draw for your luck of the year. Shake the tin can with sticks. A stick will fall out will lead you to a number that corresponds to a drawer and the message for you sits in there waiting for you. I was happy that I got one that was pretty good so that’d be something that I’d take out from time to time to make me smile. Tomorrow will only get better!
New year time is also a time to purchase one of these “lucky bags”. You might be surprised by what you get.
