Tokyo National Museum
Last Saturday we went on yet another museum outing. The highlight of the trip was realizing that we are getting better at living in Tokyo. We brought some snacks and a water bottle, but did not balk at paying $35 for lunch at the museum restaurant, $2 on ice cream bars, and $1.50 on a Coke (another headache), and let's not even figure out how much transportation cost. We could tell we did well because as we were leaving, M wanted to go to another museum. Ueno park was crowded with revelers, soaking in the sun and Sakura and getting rip roaring drunk. We were pleased to find the museum very uncrowded for a Saturday.
