Ueno park was our first stop during that Saturday morning. The park was not as crowded as it was few years ago when cherry trees were blossoming. This was at the very beginning of “Sakura” season and funny enough, Ueno park has very limited play areas to kids, the kids can roam free, but no real play grounds for them to climb or swing for example.
After a good time at the play area next to a tourist packed Tokyo´s Senso-ji temple area, the evening started to settle and we decided to visit the Tokyo Sky Tree, which is a 634 meters television broadcasting, restaurant and an observation tower. We jumped on the train from Asakusa station for 2 stops before reaching the basement of Sky tree.
Sky Tree also has a big indoor shopping area at the base of the tower (Sky Tree Town).
We visited this popular landmark on a Saturday evening before heading to Haneda airport and catch back a night flight to Dubai. We kept our baggage at Hamamatsucho metro station after checking out from the accommodation. This was a convenient solution; to enjoy the attractions and having the luggages somewhere there where we had good connection options to these attractions and the airport train.
