One extra fun thing about where we live is the 15-20 minute bike riding distance from Ueno Park. Getting bikes has made my life go up so many tiles...points....what-have-you. I love cruising around (on the sidewalk,which is allowed in Tokyo) and feeling safe and not ever threatened while doing it. I never even dreamed of getting on a bike in manhattan. Tokyo is a wonderfully bike-friendly city. The only thing holding me back is my weak sauce thighs not being able to handle steep hills. Anyway, both chiyoda and ueno parks are biking distance, which makes for a great outing that is free, scenic, AND aerobic. We biked up to keno at dusk one day and visited some of my very favorite places of the park- two shrines and the lake.
