Rendezvous With Enka

posted in: Japan Trip 2012 | 0

Remember this adventure from my Japan Trip blog?

That was almost three months ago, when Andrew and I explored Ueno and a small specialty shop located under the railroad tracks that sells Enka recordings.

In fact, we planned our day in Ueno around a visit to this shop.
