Soon after leaving the Ueno train station, we encountered the Ameyoko market. I found it surprising that they served kabab there. Later, we visited the beautiful Ueno Park, “the oldest and largest park in the city” and saw the Grand Fountain. The Tokyo National Museum was opposite to that, and we also visited the National Museum of Western Arts (although we weren’t allowed to take pictures).
The second half of the day was spent at Akihabara, the “Electric Town” as they call it. Unfortunately, most of the stores were closed that day, but we got a glimpse of what it had to offer in terms of video games, anime, and the like. We managed to snap pictures of what looked like an anime studio of some kind just before leaving town.
