Shin-Nakamise. I've always wanted to go through a shopping district like this here I am! and I just love it! especially the atmosphere.

View of Hozo gate from Sensoji temple. Sensoji temple is heaps massive! sadly I couldn't get a photo, I was just way too restricted with my 50mm and the area was insanely tight.

Possibly the most ruthless monkey I will ever encounter. The monkey put a really good show on doing various tricks.

Tokyo SkyTree right upfront. Sadly I wasn't able to go up because apparently I needed to book a time to get up and the next available time was 18:30pm.

But what really stole my attention was the shop Tokyo Village which had a K-On section full of goodies.
