Flashback: Ueno Park at Golden Week 2005

Toward the end of Golden Week in 2005, I made my first visit to Tokyo.  I went to Ueno Park and Shinjuku.  For this post, I will show Ueno Park.

Ueno Park is a very large and popular park in Taito Ward.  It has large ponds, several shrines, many big museums, and a famous zoo.  During Golden Week, it is very crowded, and there are incredibly long lines to get into the museums.  When I was at Ueno Park in 2005, it was a beautiful day.  Very sunny and warm.  Enjoy the pictures!
