These days, the Ueno area of Tokyo is a hub for cultural activities, shopping, and more -- but what was this part of the city like in years gone by? A special event at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum will explore various different works relating to Ueno, including ukiyo-e prints, photography, and more. In total, around 60 works will be displayed at the event, including the likes of Shungyo Nagashima's "Balloons at Ueno Park" (1890) and Kineo Kuwabara's "Ueno Station, Shitaya-ku (Taito-ku)" (1936).
Through each piece on display, visitors will get a glimpse into how the area has grown and changed over time.
Admission to the event is free of charge.
