This morning I walked around Asakusa (yesterday Ueno and Yanaka). Current mood: "Everything is awesome" from the Lego Movie on repeat.

Walking back thru Yanaka Cemetery in darkness (quietest, darkest place in Tokyo) & boarding a Yamanote train at Nippori was utterly jarring.

@SecondUtensil nearby Yanaka Ginza and Nezu shrine are nice for wandering around too

Yanaka Cemetery is much more labyrinthine than others I've visited in Tokyo this week. Great for wandering.

Tennō-ji is selling flowers, loaning washing kits for people doing grave visitation at Yanaka.

Yanaka Cemetery once belonged to adjacent Tenno-ji, built 17th century. The bronze Daibutsu was cast 1690. #Tokyo

It's Autumnal Equinox, a nat'l holiday in Japan when people traditionally visit family graves to pay respect. On my way to Yanaka Cemetery.
