A wonderful journey into the fascinating world of preparing tea and interacting with other people. If you are visiting Tokyo, you have to pay Shizu-kokoro a visit. Make sure to make a reservation well ahead. You can not find a better instructor than Mika! She...More

Ueno, Asakusa
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
