the ship serves good Japanese dinner… sashimi, tofu and Tempura was served as soon as these are fried immediately.

If you’d like to ride that big group as 20 people or more, you can rent whole one Yakatabune.Or small group, you’ll ride it with other groups.

Funawa “Japanese-style confection store”

Funawa

I went to Asakusa with my friend and we stopped by Funawa for sweets. We had Anmitsu and kusamochi.

Anmitsu is made of small cubes of agar jelly, a white translucent jelly made from red algae or seaweed which served in a bowl with sweet azuki bean paste or anko.

kusamochi is a rice cake mixed with yomogi. If you have a sweet tooth, you will love them!!
