Today, we first went to the asakusa shrine with a really big lantern hanging from the front gate. We had about an hour of free time at the shrine. The gap between the gate and the pagoda had a lot of stores. A few people got melon bread with ice cream in it, and the girls got shaved ice made out of strawberries; along with some chocolate strawberries. After we finished up our time at the shrine, we made our way to the edo-Tokyo museum. There were artifacts, recreations, and models from the edo period of Tokyo. For lunch, we ate tempura (breaded shrimp and vegetables. KFseafood). After lunch, we had more free time. Everyone but Shandon, Jackson, and Jacob just walked around visiting different stores. We found a Game Center and stayed there for a while. Edwardo won a snoopy plush, and Annie and Melina (along with everyone else) tried out a taiko drum game. We all had a good time at the Game Center. When the time came, everyone made there way home. Tokyo is a really big city and we won't be able to visit everywhere, but everyone is still having a really fun time here.
