Loch Ness Monster and I ventured Asakusa temple Sunday afternoon to see one of the iconic image of Japan. At the temple gates of Sensoji, looms a giant red lantern.
As Nessy writes in his blog entry, we waded through the sea of visitors to the very front of the shrine. We each paid 100 yen to pull a fortune. Nessy received the fortune called, 'the best fortune'. It professed fame and happiness! Mother fucker -I received a the so-so fortune which warned me from giving birth, looking for work, and starting new relationships!
