Images of Japan: Glimpses of Tokyo

Tokyo is, of course, an enormous city and during our brief stay we only experienced a very small portion of its varied sights. Most of the images below come from a day spent in the Asakusa district, famous for the Senso-ji Temple complex,  busy streets, and shopping arcades.
