Sensoji Temple at night

After the Taiko concert, L and I decided to go to the temple in Asakusa when there aren't the crazy crowds of gaijin everywhere.

We even talked to the kimono-shop lady, which was really fun. She was impressed that I knew a few kimono words, and taught me "himo" which are the small belts that nobody sees that holds the whole thing together. I am starting a sort of obession with kimono/yukata! So many fabrics and textures and options... and all so pretty!!! I just hope I can get away with wearing my yukata/kimono in the states... we shall see!

Sorry this pic is blurry, it is outside the temple, along the area where the touristy shops are during the day.
