When in Tokyo, I like staying near the Ueno Park because the area is so nice for a stroll! After leaving our bags at the hotel, we spent some time walking at the park and its surroundings, as we had to cross them to get to the main station. Didn’t mind the long walk, though, because it’s always so pleasant — it has lush trees, wide walkways and historic buildings we could appreciate.
If the park’s bare during winter, it’s busy during spring. It was a Sunday, so there were people visiting the museums that are scattered across the park, people dancing at the plaza (still the same Grease people who were dancing last year, that Reza thinks that the government paid them to become one of the park’s attractions), people basking under the sun, people cycling and people picnicking while playing music. Here’s where you see “chilled” Tokyo.
I was all dressed up for spring, that day! Wore a Warehouse stencil floral print shirt, James Jeans Twiggy jeans (read my review on it), Balenciaga Mini Pompon, Vita Fede wrap bracelets and a pair of Onitsuka Tiger Runspark LE.
A lot of our time was spent at Ueno on this trip, so I shall be highlighting the things you can do here in subsequent posts. Wait for it!
