Shisa, lanterns, and taiko drums …

Pachinko places that will tear yours ears into pieces. These machines are deafening …

Ueno Park reminds me so much of Balboa Park in San Diego where the zoo, museums, gardens and others are all in one general area.

It turns out that the whole place is a Wifi area.

My favorite of the gazillion things to do and see in Ueno is the Cat Cafe…
