Lightning on the Ground, Ueno Station


Ueno is one of largest terminal station in Tokyo.
Including Tohoku Shinkansen, here is entrance of Tohoku and North Kanto area.

And here is also first subway station.
In 1927, first subway had opened between Ueno and Asakusa.
This is subway Ueno station at early Showa period (Maybe late 1920s to early 1930).
