Quick stroll at Omotesando (and Ueno Park)...
I managed to do something touristy today.
Since the day ended early, I met up with a visiting friend and we did a bit of walking around Ueno Park and Omotesando.
Specifically, the area in Ueno that I like is the one where all the museums are - the Tokyo National Museum, the National Museum for Western Art, the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum and the National Science Museum. I've only been to two of these and I definitely will visit the other two one of these days.
Meanwhile, Omotesando (and Aoyama) are so far my favorite places in Tokyo. I love walking down the street and just enjoying the sights and sounds. But what I suggest is to actually get off the main street and check out the side streets of Omotesando. There are many quaint and lovely shops and cafes to be found in the area.
It was definitely a nice Friday night.
