Now I will show you Asakusa, Tokyo where there are many temples. Japanese come here to buy sweets, presents etc. Many festivals are held here too.

This was in the train station so i took a pic.


















In Japan you can see these "swastikas" but it has nothing to do with Nazis but Buddhism and was used in Japan and India for hundreds of years


Famous shopping area




Outer Gate

Now Akihabara a famous area of tokyo for "Otaku" (nerds) to buy anime,games etc.

Here is a video I took


Riding the train


























Here's an example of the weird things you can buy in Akihabara. Basically akihabara is the area of Japan that gives all of japan the "weird" image around the world. Thanks Akihabara!

You can't get around with only english! You need to learn the common phrases at least, which isnt that hard really.

If you want to learn Japanese check out my thread here
