Video - Asakusa's Nakamise Street

A shopping street of over 200 meters, called Nakamise, leads from the outer gate to the temple's second gate, the Hozomon. Alongside typical Japanese souvenirs such as yukata and folding fans, various traditional local snacks from the Asakusa area are sold along the Nakamise. The shopping street has a history of several centuries.

#4 my fave! what editor did you use to get to finish this?
#5 I hope You 2 got to sample these yummy looking treats??? Why only two were wearing masks???
#6 kool perspective & love the mono treatment, to highlight all the shades of light & textures!
#7 nice tight focus/bokeh, to highlight this "living doll"
Fun video & caption to round out the fine offering!

#2 - I already had one of those  #4- I use Topazlabs. An excellent app. Here I've used three or four different edits overlaid. #5 - I was full so I didn't taste them. Not this time anyway. Only sick people (with a mild cold for instance) use the masks, so not everyone has one. Thanks for your individual comment to all the pictures dear friend.

Fascinating series. This is the next best thing to actually being there. Great to have platforms like this to share our travel experience. I'm going to hold back my food-related comments lest you say I'm always hungry again. 😁

A fascinating culture that you have captured so well. I was captivated with #1 due to colors and density. All top quality coupled with a most educational narrative.

Density is the right word. 😀 Thanks a lot Bruce

So many new things you taught me today! 
Firstly...the capture/framing and then edit in #4 is really, really nice. That is one I would frame.
Secondly..... didn't know there was such a thing as Yukata...they were all Kimonos to me 😀
Thirdly..... not sure what a 3L size might be, elephant feet? Either way so inexpensive when converted to USD.
Loving your visit to Japan series. smile

Thank you so much my friend. 3L must be the slippers used by sumo wrestlers smile
