I show you hidden local information which you have never seen and heard of through books and ordinary site!
You will find unexpected fun through my articles!
December 17-19 is the Hagoita Market.
It is a year-end tradition in Asakusa.
Hagoita has been played by girls since around the 8th century, and is similar to badminton.
Instead of a ball, it is a small ball with feathers attached to it, which makes it fly slowly.
From that age boys played kemari, a game similar to soccer lifting, in which the ball is kicked continuously without dropping to the ground.
There are more than a dozen Hagoita shops here.
Each year, the hagoita presents the year’s hottest person of the moment .
It is fun, and this year there was a hagoita of baseball player Shohei Otani.
As it’s the end of the year, Sensoji Temple is even more crowded than usual.
Sumida river walk
Next is the Sumida River Walk.
You can either walk to the Asakusa side or the Tokyo Sky Tree side while enjoying the view from the Sumida River.
Tokyo Skytree view restaurant l
The last stop is Tokyo Sky Tree.
At 634 m, it is the world’s tallest single radio tower.
We had lunch at a restaurant called “Top of the Tree” on the 31st floor of the building next to Tokyo Sky Tree.
It was served afternoon tea style.
The view was of the Tokyo Skytree and the city of Tokyo.
It is probably the restaurant with the most dynamic view in Japan.
Why don’t you enjoy both traditional and modern structures in one day?
You will the fusion of old and new!
I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
