We went here while the cherry blossoms were blooming and it was gorgeous. It's a great mix of nature, fun with boats, and nearby temples. There are also toilets nearby which is always a plus. We spent hours here.

This is a gorgeous pond in Ueno Park, worth strolling around for its five-storied pagoda, temple, and cultural history in Ueno Park. You will walk 2 kilometers to go around the entire pond's three sections. My favorite is the Lotus Pond, enchanting and romantic.

Swan shaped boats. Seagulls will land on your roof. Great way to spend a half hour and work up an appetite! 700 yen for Sean boat.

It is quite a big pond with many swan boats. The area around the pond is really nice, with a shrine and nice views to the city.

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
