The Japan in the Winter theme continues and today its Ueno. Here we have a lot of Japanese tradition to be found - many shrines dotted around the area, the Ameyoko market, zoo, park and small streets of Ueno are a joy to explore - following bunch of photos taken before Christmas.
To get to Ueno, get off at Ueno station on the JR Yamanote line.

In a "Tatakiuri" [たたき売り] which means limited-time sale, you can find all kinds of sweet at a very low price.

Interesting food sample with mechanized chopsticks going up and down.

Kewpie with tatoo...

Onsen facility situated in the well known novelist Ogai Mori's house.
