Come and discover the hidden charms of Ueno! Ueno Park was originally a temple to the family of the Tokugawa shoguns, but the area later became a battle field in the civil war of the nineteenth century,
which resulted in the Meiji era and the dawn of Japan's westernization.
In this tour you can visit ruins and other sites of the Edo period (the Tokugawa shogunate), the civil war, and the Meiji era.
