  • Walking toward the home station of the Tokyo National Museum and came across a statue of Saigo. Know that there is a statue of Saigo from reflections and Yamanote Line, but the Park position, didn't this time happens to be dating, I took a picture. Why Ueno? I led his army in the Boshin war, attacking is the current location, is built there. Other tourists also took pictures. In this year's period drama "saigo no matter how" I guess because it has broadcast plenty of tourists to come.

  • Cherry Street in Ueno Park in Tokyo you will see on your left and walk in the direction of Keisei Ueno Station. As good as the picture taking spots. Behind the statue and Tomb of the Boshin war, Corps, Ueno Park, where historic feel to be.

  • This statue is located close to Ueno 3153 building. It would be better to have an explanation about the significance of this person, but for some reason I couldn't find it anywhere. So, most people just took photos here with the statue as a background.
  • Man with dog. Quite unique. Good meeting landmark.
  • The statue itself is just ok. Walk around Ueno park and visit the temples nearby.
  • Drink tea and saka accompany with blossomed sakura
  • On Wikipedia it was described as the symbol of Ueno park, but I met difficulty in finding it when I step out from the subway station. Despite this, the statue is interesting.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
