 Mini Temple tucked in the corner of a side street in central Tokyo. You never know what you'll find just around the corner in Tokyo. 


 The last scene from Narai-Juku is just of a simple curtained doorway of an old wooden house. 


Scenes #1 Went to the preserved little town of Narai-Juku in the Japan Alps last year that harkens back to the late Edo and early Meiji periods of Japan (late 19th into early 20th centuries)

Scene #2 from Narai-Juku. The main street of the town. The village is a nice mix of shops catering to the tourists and actual homes lived-in homes. 


 Scene #3 from Narai-Juku. A store/restaurant front (do not remember which) on the main street in Narai-Juku.
