Side Trip: Ueno Park

Ueno is more known to me as a bargain hunting ground than anything else. I knew that there was a park there somewhere, but I never really got interested in exploring it.

But while on a trip to Chiba, I realized I had much time to spare before boarding the train. So I decided to just bum around with my camera and finally get a glimpse of the "imperial gift park".

Here are some of the shots I took.

I heard there's also a zoo in the area. That I should visit next.

That statue is of Saigo Takamori. He is often called the Last Samurai. He led a rebellion in the 1870s against the new Meiji Imperial government because the Imperial government was eliminating the samurai class.
