Ueno Cherry Blossom Festival - Why You Can't Miss the Pond!

Japan, Tokyo Guide (B): Ueno Cherry Blossom Festival - Why You Can't Miss the Pond!

Ueno is located in the middle of Tokyo City and has Keisei Skyliner to Narita International Airport, JR Yamanote Line and other major trains.

It is a famous place for its collection of culture and arts such as big museums, Ueno Zoo, temples & shrines, and cherry blossoms.

Little children to grown-up art lovers visit Ueno, and I believe that many of you put Ueno on your travel schedule when you go on a trip to Tokyo.

I uploaded a post about full-blooming cherry blossoms in Ueno Park last year as a forecast and report.

It's true that some people visiting Ueno go there, but unfortunately, others don't because they get TOTALLY SATISFIED with the 1200 cherry trees BEFORE Shonobazu Pond!

Traditionally, food stands come to any festivals in Japan. If you have been reading Tokyo Direct Diary for a year, you have seen some in Morning Glory Market in July.

You can get a fried noodle, grilled corn, grilled sea food, and some soul food just by several hundred yen in the way to Benzaiten Hall. I got boiled potatoes! ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
