Tokyo Part IV: Ueno

Day 2 and back out into the world which met us with much nicer weather. For a December day it was extraordinarily warm and we were able to see that the warmer autumn had left lovely fall leaves on the trees.

Stop number one was Ueno park, one of the largest parks in Tokyo. Jam-packed with shrines and statues it was peppered with people about their Sunday walks and worship. Picture 4 was our first stop where we couldn't resist another looksee at the prayers. We also took advantage of the many good luck charms and cell phone jingly janglys on sale inside.

The lovely stone and copper laturns in pictures 2 and 3 respectively lined the way up to shrine number two whose name I am afraid to say I have totally forgotton but there it is, just the same, with Dad and me in picture number one!
