Random Picture 44

Click to see a larger image

My husband took a rikshaw ride in Asakusa awhile back, and he took a picture of these sembei makers selling fresh rice crackers and boxes with the Buddhist symbol (which resembles the Nazi symbol) on the boxes. I hadn't gone with him, so I didn't have a chance to sample any of these things, but they're pretty cheap at 500 yen ($5.98) for 8 large crackers. One of these days, I should go there with him and buy me some hand-made snacks.

fresh handmade way!

and you're right, the buddhist symbol does look like a nazi sign, except (i think) the direction is reversed. coincidence? happenstance?
