Capture Tokyo: Ueno Park

Lazy Day in Ueno Park

Ueno Park is probably one of my top 5 favorite parks in Tokyo. It has a beautiful lake and wooden path where people can relax and take leisurely walk. There are also pink and white paddle swan boats available, so you can take a romantic ride on across the lake. When I was in university, I heard a rumor that any couple who took a ride on the boats at Ueno would be doomed to break up… so please ride at your own risk, haha! The park is also famous for hanami or cherry-blossom viewing in the Spring, and it’s almost impossible to get a spot if you don’t go early in the day. Ueno Park also houses a small temple which occasionally hosts delicious food booths filled with roasted corn, takoyaki, yakisoba, and more! In any case, I would definitely recommend taking a nice stroll in Ueno Park if you have time ☆

    I so wish Hawaii could take a page from Japan’s notebook. That is such a beautiful description of that park and I would love to attend any type of small functions that are geared just for a certain type of people. Not for a mass of tourists which seems to be all that we Experience here

      I know what you mean! Tokyo actually has some really wonderful and peaceful places that are perfect for get togethers. Plus we don’t have to worry about finding parking, which is always a nightmare in Hawaii, haha!
