visitng Asakusa

I had a big show/exhibition over the last weekends in Asakusa, Tokyo. I opened workshop and sold handmade stuffs for two days. It was such a big success and great fun. Asakusa is one of the best and popular sightseeing spot in Tokyo.
There're many old and traditional Japanese restaurants in this area. We went out this traditional Japanese noodle called "soba" restaurant for dinner. It was my sister's recommendation. To be honest, I didn't like "soba" at all. I hesitated to go, but she insisted me to pay a visit. And guess what! It wa soooooo yummy and I have to say this is one of the best I'd ever visited!!! The name of this restaurant is "Owari-ya". My daughter loved it, too.
The Tokyo Tower was lighted in blue on last Sunday evening. I took this shot from my sister's flat.
And here's our breakfast my sis made for us!! Phew, I'd never cooked any traditional breakfast before. I thought she doesn't cook but looks like I was totally wrong!! It was so yum! Hehehe, we spent two nights at her flat and she must be happy now that we're gone!

My favorite breakfast is biscuits. I can't wait until I get a chance to visit Japan. It is so beautiful!

my dear Handmade Girl,

umm, biscuits breakfast sounds totally fine to me, too!
this is typical Japanese style and I don't do this way....
simple toast and some warm egg/ham plates for the school days.

yap, you have to come to Japan at least once to see me!
