The wind is still cold but biking season has come. I visited temples, architecture and shops and enjoyed my spring day.
My main purpose today is to visit the event of the second anniversary of small shopping place called Ueno Sakuragi Atari. The old Japanese houses were turned into sweet shops, restaurants or accessary shops.
The bakery here has many kinds of deli bread and all of them are inexpensive and very reasonable.
I had a green tea and lemon bread and a toast with small fish shirasu, sea weed and cheese.
There is a bike shop called Tokyo Bike and you can rent a bycicle. There are many interesting-looking streets and shops around here.
