Robot Exhibition

Ueno Robot Asimo 7
For a few weeks, our class was decidedly undecided where to spend our special trip. Two wanted to go to the Ueno Zoo, one to the stock market and others to Fuji TV or watch how paper is made. Ultimately, everyone decided on the robot exhibition in Ueno which fits nicely into our time frame (because some people have plans after school, the trips are usually not longer than three hours).

As usual I was heavily equipped with a video and photo camera. After all, it’s time to say good bye to one of our class members who returns to Zurich. Read the rest of this entry


Hanami in Ueno

Today I woke up later than I anticipated – mainly because I was going to bed later than anticipated. On today’s to-do-list was a further exploration of the environment but before that I boosted my ego and opened a shiny new blog. Well, not so shiny but with some new – make that old – entries and a few pics. I opened a webalbum as well.
I walked by foot just straight across the bridge and through the Ginza Odai Shopping Street. On my way I found another larger supermarket and after a while I reached a Yamanote line station.
I then took the Yamanote to Ueno station for a little cherry tree watching (hanami). Silly me took the wrong exit 😉 There is a park exit which leads directly to the park.
So after a while I reached the park and although it was getting darker there were still some people celebrating below the cherry trees there. And the trees are really beautiful! I took a few photos which were not as good as the ones I took a day before and on my way back I bought Yakisoba at one of the food stands.
