上野 / Ueno


Asakusa Dori road in the early morning — and dear, it is already warm.





Railroads leading away from Ueno JR Station



Akihabara/Ueno pedestrian zone. Better not go there if you don't like crammed places — especially if you are on bike. There are no postcards here to be found. Or anywhere else of that sort.



I blame overland power wires — also popular in the US — for their lack of resilience w.r.t. storms, and thus, the subsequent potential outages.
