Asakusa Samba Carnival

I haven’t been bringing Little A outdoors often because it’s just sooooo hot outside (don’t ask about our electric bill…gasp!) On wekeends though, I always schedule some family time so Little A can have some fun with DrG.

This weekend, we chose to go the Asakusa’s Samba Carnival. It’s a dance parade featuring a handful of women in skimpy outfits, some ladies in feathery costumes and tons of men in equally outrageous suits.

There were a lot of people of course so we chose a spot and waited for the parade to come by.

Did I say it was hot out? We only stayed for three groups and decided we have had enough fun.

We did a quick walk around the area and chanced upon this little cutie!

So many choices!

We settled on a cozy little restaurant and ordered two dishes.

Ebi Mayo. Crispy and mayo-ny.

image

Chicken. Mildly spicy and tender.

I ordered ginger ale which came in a pretty green bottle.

We stopped by a gelato place and couldn’t resist! Hot day, remember?

Pistachios, Black Sesame and Tofu. Really good stuff! 400yen.
