The first thing we did upon arriving in Tokyo (on Saturday) was walk through Tokyo’s famous Ueno Park. Ueno Park is famous for its cherry blossoms in spring. The photo above shows a map of the whole park. In addition to the park itself, it has a zoo and several museums.
The cherry blossoms are lovely…but this is not really my favorite place in Toyo to see cherry blossoms because Ueno Park can get VERY crowded. (This was early in the morning. Later it was completely packed with people.)
Japan has stringent rules about recycling.
A different kind of cherry blossom tree, so the blossoms are pink rather than white.
As you can see, we are in the midst of Tokyo.
