There are places you have to visit. They come on top of every travel guide. So don’t be surprised if you are not the only one.

On my second business trip to Japan I extended my stay for a weekend in Tokyo. This was the very first time that I didn’t get back after work was done. I looked forward to two days of extensive sightseeing.

Originally I planed to visit the famous Tsukijii fish market but after almost two weeks of traveling in South Korea and Japan I was exhausted and to set the alarm clock at 3am was not an option.

So I decided to visit the Senso-ji Temple in Asakusa. One of the oldest temples in Tokyo. The one with the famous, gigantic lantern which picture you can find in every guide book of Japan. So no wonder that every single tourist goes there and takes pictures of themselves standing under the lantern. I takes some patience and good luck to capture some beautiful Japanese women in colourful traditional dresses instead of Chinese tourists in slippers. I was lucky twice. On my way in I found those three posing for their friend and on my way out another beautifully dressed woman who has their picture taken by her friend.
