We will visit Yanaka which literally means ' Middle of Valley'. There are many temples there, because Shogun had planned to ward off evil spirits coming from this direction. These days Yanaka become popular for its nostalgic atmosphere. Ueno is famous for its park, museums, and historic structures. Strolling around this area is lots of fun!
