Ueno Park - Shinobazu Pond - Lotus Flowers
A rainy day in Ueno Park, in early July 2021 to view the Lotus flowers at Shinobazu Pond.
The flowers are espeically beautiful, however it is the Lotus leaves that steal the show. This huge pond is filled to the brim with the lush lotus leaves along with some hungry koi and ducks. The buildings in the background provide a beautiful contrast to the nature and remind you that you are in the middle of Tokyo.
It will take approximately 20-30 minutes to walk around the large lake, stopping to enjoy the flowers along the way. There were still some hydrangeas blooming today. Not crowded at all, due to rain.
No entrance fee for the park.
