I just returned from Japan. My seventh trip. I still discover something new every time I go there.

This time it was so cold that I bought a cheap down jacket and a hat at Uniqlo on the first day. It was cold and windy but sunny. Far better weather compared to my last trip. And because of the Corona virus there were much less tourists in Japan especially from China of course. Chinese citizens were already banned on my flight to Japan.

Very nice weather and less tourists so I gave Senso-ji, the oldest temple in Tokyo and one of the most touristic spots, another try. I was not the only one. If you are after solitude go somewhere else. But if you don’t want to have people around you you should not go to the biggest city in the world in the first place.

The temple was busy but not as bad as during my last visit. I find out that I like the place because of all the people. Some are dressed up in colourful costumes. I didn’t use the word kimono because some don’t look very traditional. There are kimono rental shops close to the temple because apparently it is a big thing to get a picture of yourself dressed up in front of the temple. A very nice photo opportunity especially if you like to
