Ueno, Tokyo

I know you all like photos, so here is another batch. This time the photos are of Ueno Park, a place I enjoy visiting in Tokyo. There are many museums in the park, and I have been to a few, though not all yet! In addition, there is a zoo, a pond, and lots of food. The Ueno train station has interesting stores, which makes shopping fun. And nearby is a street called Ameyoko, where you can find anything you want to buy, from shoes to fish; from tea to t-shirts (it’s the only place where I have found Jif Peanut Butter in Tokyo — yum!).

A eternal flame, serving as a memorial for the victims of Hiroshima and a sign of peace.
