  • It walks considerably from ueno station park entrance. Ten minutes from the station look at the margin. The relations are very beautiful. It is a very grand building.

  • I visited the sonnet concert at Heiseikan. The kofun period "The Women's Dress" is lovely and beautiful. I was completely fascinated. The back side is pretty, too! There are also special exhibitions, but it's also quite a sight to visit. Visitors can immerse themselves in ancient times less slowly. The very charming and elegant women's dress is a trap. The hairstyle is wonderful, too. The souvenirs of Tohiro are full, so it's fun. Limited snacks are purchased as souvenirs for distant friends in the package of "Fujin" and "In return beauty". It is the one that it is excellent without becoming the burden of the side that there is less than 1,000 yen, too.
