Last day in Japan! This is the Asakusa Kannon Temple, which is also known as Sensoji. It is a Buddhist temple located in Asakusa, Tokyo.

For lunch, we went to a BBQ Buffet. Our tour guide helped us order large abalones and Grade A and/or Grade AA Kobe Beef. Kobe beef cattle are hand massaged and fed beer to reduce their stress levels, maintain tenderness in their muscles and to increase their appetites so that they have a higher level of stored fat. As you can see below, the fat has a lovely marbled texture. The taste was amazing!
