After a water-taxi ride on the Sumida River we arrived at Asakusa, a huge shopping district surrounding a temple and pagoda. It was time for lunch, so we selected a very traditional looking restaurant named Tatsumiya specializing in Edo Hot Pot. Unlike our experience at yesterday's traditional restaurant, we were given a table in the area where one sits on chairs rather than on tatami mats. We ordered one hot pot and one eel over rice. Every bite was very delicious!
