Day 8: Kinugawa -> Tokyo

1. Ueno Park; Shinobazu Pond

I think Ueno is where the arty farty people congregate cos that’s where the museums and concert hall are. It’s a popular cherry blossom viewing spot in Spring. Shinobazu Pond at Ueno Park is covered in lotus leaves in summer. The last time we came here in autumn 2004, the pond looked really horrible… a huge mass of dead brown leaves… but now it looks much better ^^ there are also hydrangeas in full bloom by the pond... i like ^^

2. Dinner - Puffer fish
How can leave Japan without first eating my puffer fish??? haha... yum!
