After Shibamata, I took a train to Oshiage station located at Tokyo Skytree.
Found a nice Tonkatsu restaurant there and had an early lunch.
|Lunch set 1680yen|
Wasn't really keen to go up Skytree (expensive and long queue), so I took a train to Asakusa and walked to Sumida riverside to check out the sakura over there.
|Walking at Asakusa towards Sumida|
It was 20th March 2013 on this day, the Sakura at Sumida was just under full bloom.
From Sumida, I walked towards Kappabashi street, where they sell kitchen equipment and supplies.
|Lots of people walking from Sumida to Sensoji|
|Very crowded at Sensoji|
After quite a long walk (about 20mins) from Sumida, I finally arrived at Kappabashi.
|There are also shops here which sells sample foods you see on restaurant display|
Can you believe all these are not real food? Looked so realistic.
|Ahh...my fav...Katsudon. Looks good enough to eat.|
|Shop selling ticket vending machines|
|This shop sells restaurant uniforms I assume|
Time to leave Kappabashi. No way I'm gonna walk all the way back to Asakusa station since my feet were already aching. Decided to take a loop bus from Kappabashi to Ueno station (100yen).
From Ueno station, I headed for Tokyo station for the Character Street at Tokyo Station's basement.
