After a month in Japan our time was nearly up. We had checked out of our apartment in Shibuya and travelled by train to Nippori where we had stored our luggage in luggage lockers ready to go to Narita airport at the end of the day. Now we were back in Ueno Park, where we had finished the day before. This time we intended on being indoors, not outdoors. We strolled through the gardens past school students at a fountain
and made our way up to the Tokyo National Museum. After paying and taking a few photos of the exterior of the buildings which comprise the museum
we stowed our daypacks and started to look around. The first display featured two small statues which were over a thousand years old.
Being a tea drinker this display of teapots caught Karen’s eye
whereas the suits of armour from the middle ages appealed more to me.
