CRYS: I'm always taking the Morning Liner. Morning Liner all the way! CRYS: Make sure I don't forget this. CANDY: Yeah, I'll put mine up there too. CINDY: Shuppatsu! (Departure!) CRYS: Woohoo!! CINDY, CANDY, CRYS: Byeeeeee! CANDY: You guys look so happy! Hahaha! We made it to Asakusa. We're gonna go check out the temple today. It's a little bit drizzling... well, it was drizzling rain a little bit earlier. Hopefully it's not like that when we get out. Yeah hold on, we're about to do the... Oh shoot, oh shoot. CANDY: Alright, we lost Cindy. CRYS: Uh oh. Oh, there she is. Ok, crisis averted. Yeah, I had to get my card out to get out of the station. We're gonna go check out the temple today... We had other plans today but because it's raining, we had to kinda like switch plans which isn't a bad thing because we always wanted to visit Asakusa, the temple here. It's a famous temple. We grew up in Japan but we never went to it because we just always to to the one near our home. CANDY: I'm pretty excited to see it! CRYS: Yeah, very excited. Alright, well, we're gonna go catch up with our sister because she walks really fast. CRYS: I know, everybody in Japan walks super fast. CANDY: Yeah, hahaha! Kuma! (Crystal's corgi) CANDY: Oh, Kuma-chan! CRYS: Aaahhh! It's a corgi! All corgis! Why is it all corgis? Sorry, I got side tracked. I have take a video of these corgis. ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪ One guest, 3000 yen. And if you want, we can drop you off at the nearby temple. CANDY: Ok, we'll think about it. Thank you! CRYS: We're going to walk first. Thank you. CRYS: So, everybody speaks English here. CANDY: Yes, hahaha! It's because it's such a hot tourist spot that they have all these English speakers right when you get out of the station. I wish we could have four on one. CANDY: I know because I don't really want to do it separately but I guess it's hard for one person to pull 4 people, hahaha! I know, I know. CANDY: So this is a police box. These are everywhere. There's one in our town. so if you have any problems, you just go to that. So here it is... this is the main entrance... we're at the main entrance of Asakusa right now. Sorry, I was just like looking at everyone. Yeah, it's so packed. Right when you walk in, there's like so many people and so many people that are wanting to take a picture by the gate. So, expect tons of people. This is like on a weekday. It's a weekday and it's packed. But it is also spring break here in Japan, so... Yeah, maybe it's a little more crowded because of that. Yup. Oh, look at all those hands. Everyone's touching, hahaha ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪ Lots of gift stores, souvenir shops... It's like Narita except not that many people. There's sooooo many people here. CINDY: It's very narrow too. But no cars. ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪ CRYS: Is this the place where they make fresh sensbei (rice crackers)? CINDY: Yeah, there's a lot of them. CRYS: Oh, there's a lot of them? Ok. Let me see this one. ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪ CANDY & CRYS: Hahaha! This is rice cracker and this is pancake. This is the best one. CRYS: This is the best one? STORE CLERK: Yes! STORE CLERK: ... Black sesame, original soy sauce and a little sweet and spicy. CANDY: Do you want to try it? CRYS: Sure! Ok, we got freshly made senbei, which is rice crackers. And he said that this was the best one. The speak really good English again. So it's like a really different shape and texture. I like the shape. It's usually like a round shape. CRYS: Mmm... CANDY: Can I try? Mmmm! It's good! I like it. The only thing is, I had to get 8 pieces. I don't really need this much but we're just going to give it to our mom when we go home. It's a good price. 8 pieces for 500 yen which is about 5 bucks. CRYS: A little under 5 bucks. CANDY: A little under 5, so not bad. CRYSTAL: So that's another famous thing to do in Asakusa. CRYS: To get that ichigo... is that daifuku? CANDY: This one has red beans in it, which is more traditional, and this one has custard in it. Alright, so we see the cherry blossoms just a tad. It's still not in full bloom, but at least we see it a little bit. I know! I'm so happy we get to see a little bit. I wasn't expecting to see this much of it, so I'm pretty happy about it. ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪ Did you say "Thank you"? CINDY: You put it in there. CRYS: Ohhhh, you put it in there, ok. CRYS: Oh, so you light it up in here. CRYS: So then, this is like to.... To heal... if you want to make a certain part better. So then everybody waves the smoke to heal themselves. CRYS: Heal my nose. Heal my nose. ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪ Ok, so we just exited the Asakusa temple area... CINDY: We're still there. CANDY: I think we're on the east exit. I saw the sign... probably the east side, right? Ok, so we're on the east side but all of a sudden, it just got really quiet. Yeah, it's like there's nobody here, haha. It's like a little shocking and a big contrast... We were trying to squeeze through everything and now we're just like "Aaaaaahhhhh". Hahaha! Ohhhhh!! What is this? Oh but we can't sit inside, tho. I want to sit inside somewhere. CANDY: There's like a really small place right there. CRYS: You just want to go towards that way and see what else? Want to go like this? CRYS: Okay yeah let's do that. CRYS: Let's do that. So I got the grilled salmon set. Cindy and I are going to share it. It comes with rice, miso soup, that's the grilled salmon, this is white radish here. And then it always comes with tsukemono, which is different types of pickled items. So this is pickled cabbage and cucumber. This is some kind of pickled seaweed. I got the tonkatsu teishoku which is a set of... it's fried pork cutlet. This is actually one of my most favorite comfort foods in Japan. So it's a set that comes with the rice and the miso soup, cabbage and a little tsukemono. Their miso soup is so good too. I haven't even tasted it but I know it tastes good, haha. This looks super fresh. It's like they just made it, you know? It's like home cooked food. ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪ We just got the melon pan... which is like.. it means melon bread but it's actually... It doesn't taste like melon but it's just shaped like a melon. And it's traditional sweet bread. But this one here, right behind me, Kagetsudo, is like a really famous one in Asakusa. It's like right by the temple and there's like a huge line right now to get one but it moves pretty fast. CINDY: Yeah, it is really fast. Yeah, super fast. So, don't let the line deter you from going. CINDY: Yeah, a lot of people were like, "Yeah, let's forget it" Yeah, but it moves super fast. But it's been around since the 1940s and it's supposed to be really, really good. They're huge and we got a box of them. There's actually five but they're really big pieces, so we're about to go try them out! Oh wow, it's individually wrapped. CRYS: No, it's hmmm.... I think they're warm? We'll see. It's good, but it's still not dekitate (freshly made). It's not the hot melon pan I was hoping for. Like I've had melon pan where it was JUST made... CINDY: Aeon (Japanese mall), right? I remember that. We have it on video. CANDY: Or even at that bread store we go to. There was one in Akihabara. There was like a truck. CANDY: A food truck. And it was just... it came really right out of the oven. It was SO good! CINDY: Was it hot? CRYS: So hot. So, we're pretty much done with Sensoji temple. We just had the melon pan and we're probably going to get a little gift for our niece and then head out but uhhhhh what we thought about this temple... it's cool... Yeah but I actually really prefer the one in Narita... a lot more. Not just because of the amount of people but the one in Narita is just a lot bigger and the grounds are a lot prettier. And on the way to the temple, the street, which you call Omotesando, it's just... it's got a lot of traditional shops, uhhh... I just don't know how to explain it. It's just a lot more, um... It's more calm and peaceful. You get to enjoy the scenery more. It was cool to check out. I'm glad I came, but we both prefer the Narita temple so if you get a chance to visit both or if you want to pick one, we suggest Narita Temple. I suggest Narita. Plus, if you're flying in from Narita airport, it's much closer anyways. Yeah. Or if you're heading back to Narita, I say definitely stop by that one because it's definitely got a way different vibe than this one. If you liked this video, please give it a thumbs up!
