Before winging my way home to Santa Monica today, I decided to explore the Asakusa region of Tokyo, known for its many historic shrines and open air markets. The heart of this neighborhood -- the Sensoji Temple -- is a deeply spiritual place. Visitors come from miles around to walk through the Kaminarimon -- or "Thunder Gate" -- and purify their souls at the Water Dragon Fountain. Just outside the temple walls is the Nakamise, one of the oldest outdoor markets in Japan, dating back to 1688 when a Big Shot Shogun named Tokugawa first allowed the opening of special Tea Houses to serve visitors to the Shrine. Today, however, the Nakamise plays host to a more eclectic mix of shops selling everything from Halloween Costumes for your dog to Yokohama Bust Pudding, a popular, Japanese dessert served in a Pair of Perky, Plastic Breasts. Like everything in Japan, it all makes Perfect Sense: Visitors can pig out on "Breast Pudding" all day, then cleanse their souls at the Temple nearby ...!
