Asakusa and Shibuya

The view from Asakusa, tall and strange buildings: Tokyo Skytree and the Asahi Building with the Philippe Starck's The Asahi Flame (Flamme d'Or) (when I was living in Tokyo we used to call it the golden sperm, but I am sure that a number of names are used for it!

Sweets filled with azuki bean paste, just bought piping hot from one of the many stall in the Asakusa Sensō-ji Temple.  Below, three more images from Asakusa Temple.

Shibuya, so many memories here, nice to be just looking at the famous scrambled Shibuya crossing without having to rush somewhere!
