An Afternoon in Ueno

I went to Ueno yesterday and it was great because it wasn’t too hot. There are so many things to do in Ueno, and I accomplished everything on my list that I wanted to do. 昨日上野に行って、天気がちょうど良かったです。上野にはたくさんの様々な活動があり、全部のしたかったものができました。

I first went to Ueno zoo. It is easy to find; you just exit from the Park Exit at Ueno Station. There are so many things to do in Ueno Park, and the zoo is one of the popular things. It is the oldest and biggest zoo in Japan I believe. I’m too lazy to edit the pictures from the zoo, so I will just post some of the memorable ones. 最初の所は上野動物園でした。上野駅の公園出口を出て、アクセスが便利です。上野公園の活動の中には動物園がもっと人気がある場所です。疲れたので写真を直したくなくて、好きな写真だけアップロードします。

The zoo is huge and has two sides, east and west. Admission was 600¥ for an adult on a weekend. A lot of things are geared toward children, including some of the cutest animals, but you can participate anyways. 動物園が大きくて二人の東と西という部分があります。土日の大人の入場料は600円です。多くのアミューズメントは一番可愛い動物も含まれ、子供を対象していますが、参加することができます。

Unfortunately it seemed like a lot of bigger animals were missing and/or sleeping. There was only one panda and it was sleeping. The zoo was still fun and I recommend it. I didn’t even see everything because I got too tired. 残念ながら、多くの動物は居なかったり、寝ていたりしました。眠っていたパンダが一匹しか居なかったです。それなのに、楽しくてオススメします。疲れたので、全部の部分をまだ見ませんでした。

The hen furballs like a cat. So cute! I petted it. この牝鶏は猫のようにfurballをします。ちょっと触ってみました。

They have one alpaca named Moko. I think they have had more before, but there was only one that day. It was eating the whole time so I didn’t get a good picture. 一匹のアルパカのモコちゃんがいます。前にもう一匹いましたが、昨日一匹しかいました。ずっと食べていたので、いい写真を撮れなかったんです。

After the zoo I sat in the park and ate my lunch. I should have bought bug spray because I got seven mosquito bites. I still have them and they hurt to walk. 動物園の後、公園で座っているままで朝食を食べました。防虫剤を買えばよくて、7回蚊に刺されました。まだあるから、歩きにくいです。

The second place I went to was a department store close to the park called AbAb. It has fairly cheap gyaru fashion and other clothes for younger women. I didn’t buy anything, but I thought the items were not bad. 第二の所はABAbという上野公園の近くにデパートに行きました。安くてギャル及び若い女の子のファッションを売っています。何も買わなかったけど、品揃えがいいと思います。

The last place I went to was Kyu Iwasaki-tei Garden. It is near the edge of Ueno Park. It is called a garden, but it is actually just a very big Western and Japanese style mansion. The Iwasakis lived there and apparently they started Mitsubishi, so you know they were loaded. On the weekend for an adult, the entrance is 400¥. The house was beautiful and I imagined what it would be like to live there. I enjoyed it so much. 最後の所は上野公園の端にある旧岩崎邸庭園です。「庭」と呼ばれますが、実は和洋風の大邸宅です。岩崎家族がここに住んで、三菱を初めて、もちろんすごくお金持ちでした。土日の大人の入場料は400円です。とても綺麗、住んでいる感じを想像して楽しかったです。

That’s all for my day in Ueno. I hope you enjoyed reading about my Saturday. 以上で、土曜日の投稿を読むのはありがとうございます!
