Peaceful. Just steps away from Ueno Station you'll find a glorious reprieve from the frenetic merchant buzz of Ueno. This shot was taken on a people-watching walk one summer afternoon and it began to rain-- (June is rainy season in Japan). A woman was sketching these lotus on a park bench with her husband when the rain started, he simply pulled out an umbrella and held it for her while she worked. Neither said a word. Ah, love.
It's the perfect place to take your camera or a good book and play with nature for a little while.
Always a good place for a walkabout, we always enjoy visiting the Ueno Park area when we are in Tokyo. There's the Ueno Zoo and National Musuem of Nature and Science, which the kids always enjoy visiting as well,
