friends from home

Posted on: May 15, 2010

yesterday i went to meet up with jin, shereen and solera who are here on holiday! we planned to meet at shinjuku and i brought them to akihabara after that, because they wanted to have a look at how it looks like 🙂

after much fangirling (and fanboying) in animate, we headed off to 浅草 asakusa to meet up with tsu.

the pretty wall decoration at asakusa station depicting the 三社祭り sanja matsuri

a traditional trader at 仲見世通り nakamise st 🙂

jin and solera

shereen and i 🙂

it was quite a good day – fair weather, but quite cloudy… thank goodness it didn’t rain when we were out!

the mikoshi for the festival

the theme colours for the festival seems to be purple and gold… very luxurious!

i went up close to the mikoshi and peered up at the torii, and i saw little people peeking back at me!

🙂 hi there

where there is a festival, there will always be yatai, or roadside stalls! this one might be nostalgic to some people – have you ever tried fishing for games, toys and goldfishes?

guys in traditional attire cooking downtown specialties

the overwhelming painting of a huge golden dragon in front of the main hall

some girls are already dressing up in informal summer yukata >w< i can't wait for the shops to start selling them so i can buy tons of them!!! i intend to spend my days (out of university) in them!

the main hall 🙂 a lot of metal, but still beautiful

they went to osaka last night by bus and hopefully they’re enjoying their time!

Your blog makes me really nostalgic. I remember shopping for electronics in Akihabara. And I would love to wear a yukata too! 🙂

🙂 Yukatas are fun!
