Although I can appreciate the passion for his craft there was no need for the printmaker to have an outburst and tantrum at my whole family and telling the assistants to only help the two doing it like he said. Even when I asked questions...More

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
