Kasuga street

I thought Kaiga Dori is Kasuga street in English but it is not correct...
It says Kasuga dori ave. "Dori" is street or avenue in Japanese.
What's the difference between street and ave.,,?

Brightness in a city

It's been already 2 weeks since I took this photo, near Nippori station, Tokyo.
I like the way they are in blossom. It would be better if we had blue sky.

The bottle of sake

Rainy season has come in Kanto area. It is 17 days earlier than last year.
Will this summer in Japan hot as well as last year? We are required to save power and I hope
it is not hot as last year.

One of the famous shrines in Japan, Kamakura hachimangu.
I like the view from here when I take photo.

Myohonji is one of the nearest temple from Kamakura station.
It is good place to visit, as you don't see many tourist there.
I like color of the leaves in May. It is fresh and soft.

We don't use rickshaws as a way of transportation anymore in Japan, however, we see
quite a lot of them at tourist spot and I saw them yesterday at Myohonji, Kamakura. 
It costs USD175 for 1hour for 2 persons and could be most expensive in the world.
Since memories are priceless, why don't you try it at tourist spot in Japan...?
