Goldfish Catching and Rickshaws at Nakamise-dori

Nakamise-dori had plenty of stalls selling meals and snacks but also a few other things to do. One "game" that we saw involved participants using a paper net to catch goldfish as these school kids are doing below.

The net is completely flat, unlike a nylon net, so it didn't seem easy, particularly as the paper seem to fall apart quickly because of the moisture.

The exit to Asakusa station nearby had a row of young rickshaw drivers and we saw a few of these ferrying Japanese customers around. I'm assuming that they were giving tour guides in Japanese.
