Ueno on Midori no Hi

As mentioned in my previous post, we went to Ueno to visit the park after wandering around Akihabara. The park is huge, with a lot of museums, shrine, baseball courts and even zoo for people to visit. Initially, when we went to the park, we saw a street performer around whom a lot of people…

A Trip to Akihabara Area!

It was on Midori no Hi (緑の日) or Greenery Day/ Arbour Day which was part of Golden Week (ゴールデンウィーク) that we went to Akihabara and Ueno (the latter will be covered in another post). Since we pretty much just reached Japan to be able to make any plans ahead to go visit other sides of…

Ramadan in Japan

Although halal restaurants and grocery stores have mushroomed in Japan, and even halal gifts are sold in the big stores and some places providing prayer rooms, Islam is still an uncommon religion in Japan. Us wearing the hijab (scarf in English and tudung in Malay), lent us some looks from people here. Surprisingly, not only […]
