Ueno is a large park located in the city of Taito. Attractions found in Ueno park include, among others, a zoo and the Tokyo national museum. During our visit, we had the chance to observe the Japanese champion of “Kendama”, a game that consists of catching a ball with a specially crafted wooden stick. A small lake on which you can ride a swan boad seems also to be quite popular among Japanese nationals.
Since my better half is Japanese I often have the chance to travel to Japan. I grew fond over time of this magnificent country. I thought of sharing with you some places worth visiting in this little but growing travel guide to Japan. I try to show with images what I can't express with words. I hope you may find here some inspiration! For those who wonder, I chose the moniker Gaijin-San after being called like this by a waitress at a grilled eel restaurant. "Gaijin" means foreigner and "San" is a honorific suffix in Japanese. View all posts by Gaijin San
