About my weekend.

I went to Ueno last Sunday, three-day weekend.

I walked in Ueno Onshi park.

I thought this architecture is Ueno Toshogu Shrines(上野東照宮). But I knew it is Kanei-ji Temple(寛永寺) later 🙁

I’m embarrassed that I visited the temple with not knowing whether it is temples or shrines 🙁

A lotus flower cheered me up.

Well, I happened to find Ueno Parak and I walked in the park with ease. My aim was this place.

You cannot take pictures in the house. Also, never touch everything in the house for preserving this architecture.

It have a little style of Muslim architecture.It is very nice 😀

The pool hall looks like cottage.

When I passed the joint between Japanese-style house and European-style house, I was excited just a little 🙂

But I want to see its first floor and underground,too.

Then, I went to Sichuan Dandan noodles AUN to eat dandan noodles.

It had much sichuan peppers.

Sichuan peppers were strong, but this tantanmen was not very hot. I wanted to eat more more hot one. But it was good 🙂

      I’d like to, but I won’t be able to enjoy my weekend. Because now I’m suffering from hay fever badly.
      I have an appointment with my friends to go eat it this weekend, but I may be unable to go 🙁
