After a solid morning of aggressive slight seeing, the wood block printing was a nice break. Friendly and calming instruction guides you through the steps to produce your own souvenir. Groups of 4 are smooth, but larger groups are welcome, just takes a bit longer....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
