  Rodin in Tokyo
by Sharrie

Sometimes my eyes play tricks on me.
What am I seeing?
Rodin in Tokyo?!
Aha, just b4 reaching the heart of Ueno Park, outside at the main entrance is the NATIONAL MUSEUM OF WESTERN ART

It was not what I came here for.
So, follow your heart or set priorities.
There's no way anyone could complete a tour of Tokyo no matter how many times you've been here!
My main reason for this visit this time is to enjoy Spring, the Sakura & friends.
NOT museums. Hence, I gave it a miss.

For those of you interested... the website provides a detailed & indepth idea of what's in store for you at this museum. Check it out at NMWA.go.jp!
Take note that most museums (& there are at least 20 of them in the vicinity of Tokyo) are closed on Monday!

Address: 7-7 Ueno-koen, Taito-ku, Tokyo 110-0007
Directions: 2 mins walk from Ueno JR Station.
