Day excursion - Ameyoko Market

Last Friday Ryan and I decided to hop over to the Ameyoko Market in Ueno. After going to tons of awesome, cheap-o markets in China it was a bit of a shock seeing secondhand clothes sold for 2,000 yen ($20US). Regardless of the pricey goods, it was still pretty interesting.

After the market, we stopped by a local museum where they had a tour guide that spoke English. Score! Right outside of the museum was this pond, completely covered with giant lilly pads. Tomorrow we're heading back to Mashiko to pick up my finished pottery, woo hoo!

Fun day, fun times.
