Tokyo Japan: Life in Pictures [4 of 5] Odaiba to Asakusa

The JR-Yamanote's auto updating / time remaining subway screen.

Maid cafe employees, turning their back on photographers.

Neon Genesis is everywhere, including coin lockers.

Escalators outside: It's amazing what a lack of snow allows.

The Statue of Liberty in Odaiba, down by the water.

The beautiful architecture of the Fuji Building... better appreciated from afar.

You can tell a lot about a culture by their video games.

Dogs inside purses? That's fine!

Asakusa - a memorable entrance.

A group of people lined up to purchase snacks.

The temple looms every closer.

Once again, the symbolism is overpowering.

Powerful imagery decorates the Buddha.

For years he has watched over this place.

Only minutes away, the tourist culture wanes.

Sub-Urban revival and construction over powers.

Never having been to L.A. I had to take his word for it.

Brightly coloured cartoons advertising the gambling culture.

Mistranslations lead to potentially better titles.

Multitasking? Never outside!

What purpose the raising lights serve? I'll never know.
