Japan : Day Two

Typical early spring weather greeted us on this day. Wet and overcast. Starting the day by trying a very BAD canned HOT coffee (tasted of can, no surprise there, but we had to TRY at least) from a dispenser down the road we made our way to Ueno.

Where we explored a park, temples and went to an art gallery. Saw an exhibit on William Morris and his influence in different cultures, i liked! I also took Kylie to a flower arrangement exhibit. The poor boy was very patient. Our observation today was the umbrella appeared to be a required fashion accessory. For there was only  a mild, if non-existent, drizzle and umbrellas were everywhere, of all colours and patterns imaginable…

This park will look like a wonderland right now, we missed the blooming, but saw many trees on the verge of blossoming. Bit disappointed about that, not much i can do about that now!

This place was quite creepy, with crows squawking loudly in the background and everything being quite dark…
 

Day three was bright and sunny! A Temple, squid balls, St. Patrick’s day, a tower, shopping district and sushi. Stay tuned!
