Ride around Asakusa in Tokyo

On Tuesday, I had the day off so I decided to take the train up to Tokyo for a day of sightseeing.  Spent a very pleasant day riding the Carryme around Asakusa and the Sumida River.   Visited Meiji Jingu Shrine and enjoyed the deja-vu experience of returning to a place I haven`t been to in many years.  The last time must have been 8 years or so ago. Time flies!
Not much has changed in the area except for one really big thing - the ginormous new construction project already towering above the old traditional neighborhoods in which it stands. Tokyo Skytree will eventually be 634 meters high and is due to begin bombarding Tokyo residents with powerful microwaves sometime in 2012. 

Where is Godzilla when you need him?
