asakusa shopping, tokyo

Just outside the Thunder Gate of Sensoji, Tokyo’s oldest temple, is a street of open stores called Nakamise. At a busy store filled with kimono, I bought a XXL yukata for Chef William of Bakery Nouveau in West Seattle. The white cotton fabric is adorned with squatting sumo wrestlers in indigo blue. Although the shopping area is definitely a tourist trap, it’s always fun to interact with Japanese store owners.
