Sightseeing in Tokyo, Part 1

On our first day in Tokyo (pre-hike) we saw the Sensoji Shrine and the Meiji Temple in Harajuku. We also enjoyed people-watching, with Japanese women wearing a much more feminine attire than we typically see in the states - nearly everyone in dresses, and many carrying parasols as well. I'll be writing about some of that for my work blog soon ... in the meantime, here are some of the sights:

We weren't the only ones posing for pictures

Prayers hung around the tree

For our Sun Devil readers: Sparky made the trip to Japan with me as a favor to Alison, who now works for the ASU Alumni Association. You can see his Japan pics and others from Sparky's Summer Break here.

They are there! You'll just see one, but if you wait they rotate through like a slideshow.
