Ueno Park Boating / Hanada (花田)

Ueno park
[Throwback July] The original plan was to check out the exhibition from the Taiwan National Museum but the wait line was at least 120 minutes so we decided to take a walk in the Ueno Park instead. My first experience on a paddling swan boat. 30 minutes for 700JPY.

A fun way to work out your legs.

The sky looked all dark and gray when we started out.

There was only a few boats out when we first started out.

But the sky cleared up and blue sky appeared.

Then it got all too hot and warm but there is no way you can get out till you paddle up your 30 minutes in the pond 😛

Finally 30 minutes was up and all the swans are returning to base.

Now I am back on the shore, I can laugh at the people sweating it out inside there.

Ueno park is also famous for their hydrangeas during the July rainy season.

I was lucky to catch the last bits of these flowers at their end of season. Nature is just short lived.

There was also a big lotus pond at Ueno Park.

Famished after a work out so checked out this popular tsukemen place in Ueno.

You can top up extra vegetables for no extra charge.

Turned out that there was so much vegetables that it looked like a little mountain with a big of flavorful soup with noodles. So full that we can’t eat dinner that night.
