Sakura 2016, Ueno Park


Last year, I went Ueno Park during daytime. It was like tunnel of Sakura and people were enjoying eating and drinking.

This yaer I went Ueno Park at night.
Ueno park is one of the best 3 Yozakura(Night Sakura Viewing) place in Japan.
Others are Hirosaki Park(Hirosaki City,Aomori Prefecture), Takada Park(Joetsu City, Nigata Prefecture).

I entered from near Keisei Ueno Station’s entrance. There was large lantern.

Lanterns are illuminating Sakura. But it was a little dark.I could not see Sakura well. But it was beautiful atmosphere.

I could go up from here, but I went Shinobazu Pond.
Upper area is where I walked last year.
At night, there will be drunkard’s paradise.

Let’s go toward Shinobazu Pond.
Shinobazu Pond is over the road.

Here is opposite side.
This area is darker. Sakura is not lit up. Only street lights.
I looked for best place. But it was difficult.

Sakura is too dense. But I could enjoy its beauty. Bentendo’s color is also good. It stands out in darkness.
