|Original butterfly soap by Miho Morita sensei|
- I've got an idea on how to build a complicated design
- I've learned a tricky knife motion (should be more practised)
- I feel more confident now in making difficult thing.

Japanese soap is soft and has a pleasant perfume smell

After the class I met my Sakhalin friend at the appointed place and we went for a walk to Sensoji Temple located at Asakusa district. Sensoji is a must for Tokyo sightseeing. That is a Buddhist complex with a temple, pagoda and a garden.

At the temple area you will find many gift stores. It is called Nakamise street. They sell sweets, gifts, kimono, food and other nice things. Sensoji is not just a famous tourist spot, this is a beloved place by japanese people too. Step aside of Nakamise street and you get Geisha City. As we were explaned Geisha City was a name for a restaurant and eating house zone in Edo age. Sounds lovely, doesn't it?
