Our trip to Tokyo this past summer was full of beautiful and amazing sights and on our third full day we decided to venture to the neighborhood of Ueno. It is home to the famous Ueno Hill where the Tokugawa shogunate made their last stand against the emperor in 1868 and it is also the sight of the largest postwar blackmarket (Ameya Yokocho) where you can still find some of the best deals on numerous goods. With the gorgeous Ueno Koen (Ueno Park) and its numerous museums, art galleries, and temples I knew it would be a fantastic day!
So follow me on a journey through my third day in the awe-inspiring city that is Tokyo…
