Ueno District is one of Tokyo’s busiest and has plenty of fun activities to fill an entire day. Here you’ll find Japan’s oldest zoo, more museums than you can visit in one day, a French-style modern park with a lake, Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples, and busy streets with food and merchandise vendors.
During your time in Japan, you might have noticed that we have many traditions to go with every one of the four seasons. Spring brings a bounty of flowers, seasonal foods and traditions for you to experience.
Though Tokyo marked its earliest Sakura blooming this past March 14 and other sections of the mainland, too are also getting a taste of spring, Aomori Prefecture up north is still in the throes of winter.
