今日は憲法記念日 (Today is Constitution Day (the anniversary of the day that Japan’s post-WW2 constitution was adopted)).

We walked all around the 上野 (Ueno, Tokyo) area. We stopped at some stores that looked interesting to my wife and daughter, and we also went to the 「東叡山寛永寺円頓院」 (“Toeizan-kan-ei-ji-endonin Temple“).

This temple, commonly called 寛永寺 (Kan-ei-ji Temple), is a famous temple in Tokyo where the graves of the Tokugawa Shogun are.

Here are some photos I took:
