(1771) Swords, so to speak


The most famous souvenir from Asakusa is "kaminari okoshi" (雷門 おこし) a sweet snack made of rice puffs and sugar. And the most famous Japanese object is the samurai sword, also known as "katana" (刀). So why not a combination of the two: a sword made of kaminari okoshi -of course in Asakusa.
