浜離宮紅葉.jpg
There are some great Edo Shogun/ Daimyo Gardens in Tokyo. We've recommended Hama-rikyu Garden, which was place Shogun hunt with a falcon in the Edo period. This garden is very beautiful and you can feel Edo however you stay in Ginza area.
If you've not visit there yet, you'd better go to Hama-rikyu Garden on 2nd day (Fri.) or 3rd day (Sat.) in January 2015. Because Japanese New year's event will be held. 
A part of Japanese traditional falconry "Hohyo-jutsu" performs, which is the art of letting a hawk loose. And Japanese art "Aiki-do" performs too. "Aiki-do" is the art of self-defense that takes advantage of the opponent's own movements. 
And you can join in Japanese New Year's traditional games. 
On 3rd day in January, guided garden tour by English language is available, it's free! Besides you can enjoy Japanese powdered green tea & Edo food!!                                                                  (by Sae)

MOMOTARO/Japanese-style confectionery

Momotaro is a small shop with long history, established 1871. 
Shopkeeper is friendly, he makes Momotaro's confectionery at the inner part of the shop everyday. Tamaki and I have had a kind of dumpling "Yaki-Dango" here today. We've been very happy, because it's delicious, and different from others.

Dango is one of Japanese traditional snacks. Japanese people has loved dumplings on a stick "kushi-dango" since the Edo period. "Yaki-Dango" is grilled "kushi-dango". Anyway it usually made of rice and rice's powder in sauce which made of say-sauce with sugar. 
But Momotaro's is made of rice with soy-sause. Tamaki and I have never had such delicious and unique shape "Yaki-Dango like this! Moreover the price is only 120JPY!!!
I wonder Momotaro's "Yaki-Dango" goes well with Sake! And also I've recommended it for your light meal or snack when you are visiting in Asakusa.  At last we've bought more "Yaki-Dango" and sweetened bean paste "an" topping "An-Dango" for our each family. 

Momotaro's "An-Dango" tastes moderate sweeter than  other's shop's one. And "an" topping shape is different from others. 3 "an" plates are put on each one dango.
How beauty! I've never seen "kushi-dango" with "an" plates like this! Tamaki too. The price is 120JPY.
