PinkBird's Picture: Tokyo, Japan (Kokeshi Dolls)

While traveling in Japan I ended up buying quite a few of these lovely Kokeshi Dolls, both for myself and for friends. I took this picture in the Asakusa Market in Tokyo. The Asakusa Market is a large, often crowded market near the Sensoji Temple. It was excellent for people watching, and easy to get to on the subway. The Sensoji Temple was amazing and beautiful. I like this picture, as there's something interesting to me about the various reflections in the glass and the colors and variety of these wooden dolls.
