Not packed in a bus. Not herded with a group. Self guided walk is the SAFEST way to sightsee while observing SOCIAL DISTANCING!
A Day at Ueno Park

A Day at Ueno Park, Tokyo, Japan (B)

We arrived at Ueno-okachimachi Station on the Toei Subway, intending to spend our day at Ueno Park. Instead of walking Nakamachi-dori straight to Ueno Park, we took a longer route via Ameya Yokocho (Ameyoko), a street market just a few steps from the station which will still lead us to Ueno Park. Ameya Yokocho is filled with shops selling all sorts of things: shoes, clothes, beauty products, fruits, meals, etc. We survived the walk without buying anything! Congratulations!

There were restaurants along Ameya Yokocho, but we weren't feeling hungry...not until we reached the end of the street. We went looking for food at Ueno 3153, the building right beside the steps to Ueno Park. Ueno 3153 offered us some choices: Family Mart, Lotteria, Pepper Lunch, and a couple of restaurants whose names were in Kanji. We picked one which had pictures of delicious looking Japanese food: Satsuma Uosen 薩摩魚鮮 on the 3rd floor of Ueno 3153. My friends ordered 天ぷら せいろ (Tempura Seiro) which had tempura and soba, and 桜島御膳 (Sakurajima Gozen) which had pork sukiyaki, rice, sashimi, and salad. (I had forgotten to take photos of their food, but both meals looked really good!) I, myself, just felt like eating chicken, so it was just チキン南蛮定食 (Chicken Nanban Set Meal) for me. ......
