No tradicional distrito pitoresco de Yanaka, perto da estação de Nippori, há um grande conjunto de santuários e (principalmente) templos, demais para conseguir decorar todos. Nos seus terrenos irá encontrar estátuas de muitas formas e tamanhos, de pequenos bebés bonitos à grande deusa dourada da Misericórdia no Zenshou-an. E sob os telhados e em torno dos lados dos edifícios estão algumas esculturas intrincadamente detalhadas, aumentando ainda mais o charme e a atmosfera.

Born in the Portuguese countryside in 1990, I've been living in Japan since 2012. After finishing my Computer Engineering University Course in Lisbon, Portugal, I decided to study Japanese in Tokyo, with the purpose of continuing my studies there. After one year of studying of the language, I entered a Japanese Professional College where I finished my study in 2015. I am now working in a videogame Japanese company as Motion Designer. I also write in my blog about Japan. My goal is to introduce Japan to anyone who is interested in the culture, the language, the music, the anime, the food, and so on. And that's what you can find there: everything! Plus, my experience here as a Portuguese expat.
