Tokyo Travel With a Child Part 2


After our big breakfast at Bills, we hopped on the Yamanote line train to Ueno. If you've never been to Tokyo, let me tell you, the Yamanote line is your friend. It's basically a circle loop train that stops at most of the major sightseeing areas. We basically wanted to make this day all for the little guy so headed straight to the National Museum of Nature and Science which is in Ueno Park. Mainly we wanted to see the dinosaur bones as the little guy has been into Dinosaurs recently, so we spent most of our time in those sections, however Griff found everything fascinating and i'm sure he could have spent a good few hours there without getting bored. 
After the museum, we walked through the park to Shinobazu pond, which was on the other side of the park, so we could hire a swan boat. It was a beautiful day and perfect for it! We paid 700 yen for 30 minutes, which I thought was great (I'm sure the cost for something like this in Australia would have been triple that amount). There was plenty of room for all 3 of us, with Helen and I on the pedals and Griff in control of the steering wheel. After our time was up we headed back to the train and stopped off at Tokyo station for vegan ramen at T's Tan Tan, which is actually inside the station. I really didn't do very well taking photos this trip, as I realise I didn't even get a photo of lunch! Or any from the museum!

Griff loves the trains.
