Konnichassu!

Well, finally almost done with this super late post. Honestly not one of my best moments this year to put this hanging but work calls. At least I have finished it of some sort. Now, lets continue onward to Day 4 of this late, yet still here post.

Check out the photos below to see what is up with them!!!

Our first call of order for this day was in Ueno though my brother threw a fit because it was too hot to visit Ueno, but pretty much I was too tired to even go somewhere far since he wanted to go back to that shop somewhere in Shinjuku.

Yo Saigo Takamori, this is a better photo than the one I took last time. Look at that sky!

The view from Kiyomizu Kannon-do, one of the many temples in the Ueno Park area. You would be able to visit quite a lot in one roam in this park.

My brother had loads of fun watching this puppet bring in his fortune. It was in English too so it was easy for him to understand.

In Ueno Park, you get to see street performers. They got some really cool stuff and you can donate if you want to.

Also found these kids playing baseball.

Thats Tokyo National Museum at the middle there. I don’t recall this bit to be completely flat since the last I was here, there was this big fountain and all. Fast change I suppose.

Instead of going in the National Museum, we went to the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum which had a very nice entrance and some free exhibits to enjoy. A bit of art and I got to practice my Katakana writing… of my name. I ended up forgetting my surname’s Katakana and had to check Facebook for it.

Here in this picture is the old site of an old amusement park for kids which is in front of the Ueno Zoo. They got rid of it now. Hopefully something new stands there in my next visit.

Inside Toshogu Park, I say summer weather is perfect for these shots. No filters and everything.

After some more souvenir shopping, we walked from Asakusa Station to locate Ichiran and found this nice view. Good Samsung night shot.

We also took a gander at the Asakusa Tourist Information Center to view Asakusa at night. As you can see, Kaminarimon is under construction.
