Walking (Climbing) out of the Metro station
 There's 2 main subway services in Tokyo.  1 is the JR, and the other is the Metro.  1 main difference is that Metro stations are mostly (if not all) underground, and JR stations are above ground.  If given a choice, I prefer taking the JR since it's quite a long way to climb for the Metro stations.  And no, there's no escalators.

Crossing the road over to Sensoji Temple

You'll know you are at the right place when you see this gate.

very crowded.  

 Many stalls don't appreciate you taking photos of their stalls.

Fried stuff with some sort of bean filling

Cookies and Cream Ice Cream "Burger".  Was nice, although feels weird eating ice cream in cold weather.

A group of tourists stopped 2 Japanese schoolboys and got them to pose with their daughters for pictures. Poor boys. They were stuck there for quite awhile since they were still there after I came out of the Ice cream stall.

the hubby taking photos of trees (I think)
