Hydrangea in Senso-ji Temple

hydrangea in senso-ji templeWhen I visited Senso-ji temple the other day, I found hydrangea beside a stone tablet inscribed with haiku by Masaoka Shiki.

And that hydrangea gave me a chance to take a photo of the five storied pagoda in the temple.

And little yellow flowers bloom on the water of the pond.

Nippon Daemon in Asakusa


Nippon Daemon is a character of "Shiranami Gonin Otoko" that is a Kabuki drama.
He is the leader of a group of five dandy thieves.


I took these photos on Denpoin-dori(street) in asakua.


When I saw his back, I knew he works as a sign on the street.


That signboard says "No entry for vehicles"(車両通行止).

By the way, I hear that other guys of the group is hiding somewhere on the street.
I will introduce you them someday.
