[Sakura 2013] Ueno Kouen (上野公園)

Ueno Park (上野公園, Ueno Kōen) is a large public park next to Ueno Station in central Tokyo. The park grounds were originally part of Kaneiji Temple, which used to be one of the city’s largest and wealthiest temples and a family temple of the ruling Tokugawa clan during the Edo Period. Kaneiji stood in the northeast of the capital to protect the city from evil, much like Enryakuji Temple in Kyoto. – Japan Guide

Look almost like snow, with full bloomed Sakura.

Top popular spot for hanami, almost every spot is parked with people having a merry time under the trees. Totally funny in my opinion since most Japanese were suffering from pollen allergy and yet, they love their sakura trees so much.

Organised trash.

Look up to the blue sky with white cherry blossoms.

Playing with more close up shots.

Organised crowd.

It was so crowded at the shrine that I did not even dare to venture down.


Stone lanterns with sakura as back drop.

If you ever head to Japan, do try these BBQ fish. BBQ-ed with just salt, the fish had to be fresh. Do be careful though as there are many bones too.
