When I arrived I was pleasantly surprised to find I was having a private session, which, for me, was great because I always have hundreds of questions but feel unable to ask them all when others are in a group.
A lovely Japanese lady, Yukiko,...More

I have attended a Japanese sake tasting. The sake we tasted were all excellent quality from various locations in Japan and of course very good! The explanations about the sake were very informative and it was wonderful experience. Strongly recommended.

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
sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
