This is second hanami article.
Here is Ueno Park Taito-Ku,Tokyo,Japan.
Nearest station is Ueno Station.
Ueno station is very large.
So you should go out from Park Exit.
There were many people at Koenguchi(means Park exit).
Not only beautiful nature,here are many museums in Ueno Park.
So I like here.

National Museum of Nature and Science

So many people!!!So beautiful sakura!!!
Vivid contrast of pink and blue.
It looks fun!
Here is forest area.
Many people are sitting on blue seat.
This is daytime.So some people are keeping their place.
And waiting for their friends.
This is typical scene during Hanami period.
I feel “Hanami” from this scene.
And this is very “Hanami” scene!
From evening to night,more and more visitors would have come.
These are close up.
And this is pink sakura.
This was very popular especially travelers from out of Japan.
Can you feel fun??

You don’t have enough time??
If you go Ueno park many times,you will be able to enjoy every time!
After fun time,it is possible to discard the trash.
But please follow the separation of trash.
But here are a lot of trash,please take home as much as possible.
