Shutter Art in Asakusa

I took this photo on denpoin-street.
That is a udon (Japanese thick noodle) restaurant.
If you visit asakusa in morning, you can see many nice shutter art.

This photo was taken on May 19 , 2010.

The samurai on the shutter wears these - in my eyes - very uncomfortable traditional Japanese "shoes" / clog sandels (?) I don't know their right name.
I saw these "shoes" in front of one of the Kamakura temples. There was a traditional Japanese wedding ceremony inside.
Do you have a pair of these sandals, too, Nobu-san?

Regards, Uwe.

I find very pretty and clever to decorate the shutters this way. Here we have often ugly graffitis; But I guess you have to wake up to admire them!
