[Day 4] Springtime in Tokyo: Ueno Park

Today is considered to be our last day in Tokyo.  Sad, even the weather sympathizes with us, it’s very gloomy. But this won’t stop us from making the most of our last day even if it rains.





We headed to Ueno Station and had lunch before sending off Ate Cel who is going back to Fukushima. There are a bunch of restaurants outside the station.  But since it’s raining and almost lunch time, most of the restaurants were occupied. Then we decided to have lunch at Yebisu Bar. The food display counter is very inviting.






No we didn’t try their famous Yebisu beer sareehh hehe. I thought it was an expensive restaurant, but price is very reasonable and everyone enjoyed the food. Thanks to Mars three sisters for treating us for lunch.

After saying goodbye to Ate Cel and Ate Carl, we continue our journey to Ueno Park. One of the best cherry blossom viewing in Tokyo according to Japan-Guide.com. The Park is located next to the station “Park Exit”. 

UENO PARK



How to get there:

JR Ueno Station, Park Exit.



The weather is not cooperating; it was raining the whole time we were at the park. I’m just quite disappointed not seeing as many cherry trees as expected, maybe because of the weather. It was raining since the day we arrived.

Kiyomizu Kannon Temple

We stop to this first cherry tree we saw that is still in bloom. A nice spot for a photo op, with a beautiful temple as backdrop. I didn’t know that this temple is popular pala to women hoping to have children.




Another popular cherry tree located inside the temple packed with tourists.





I just love the color, very  pretty.





It’s a bit nippy and the rain continues to pour so we headed back to the train station to cath our 3PM Disney schedule.
