Japan — Day 2

We begin the day with a subway ride (one of many on this trip) to the Ueno district. where we see what the city was like in the old days, including a wonderful section of museums and galleries said to be the best in Japan.

Ueno Park is one of the city’s largest open spaces and renowned for its seasonal cherry blossoms. The we make a stop at the Tokyo National Museum. the largest museum in Japan, with some 87,00 items. The world’s largest collection of Japanese art, including some of the most important Buddhist artwork, is housed here along with many other treasures.
