The Style of Station Building

After the current building of Ueno Station was completed in 1932, several stations were constructed, modeled after the Ueno-style, for example, Otaru in Hokkaido, Dalian in the northeast part of China and so on. Ueno Station used to be called a gateway to the north. Today, the structure of the station still has the remaining traces. In my tour, Former Residence of Great Artist in Yanaka & Ueno Free Tour, you may go to Ueno Station. Why don't you join me?

As I am a 60 year old man, born in Tokyo, graduated from a university in Tokyo and worked for a leading paper wholesale company at its headquarters for 35 years, I am an Edokko or a native Tokyoite. I am familiar with various interesting places in Tokyo and the Kanto area such as historic spots, scenic beauty, entertainment, restaurants and so on. Although I basically provide several regular walking tours for visitors from abroad, I am willing to arrange your tour plan in a customized way according to your interest. If I receive your inquiry, I am ready to hear your interest and what you want to experience, and discuss your plan with you in advance.
