Tokyo Japan (Day 11 Part 2) - Ueno (上野) - Ueno Park

March 07, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

As it was still early Still I was kind of amazed at how many people already were walking around the park. I could imagine how busy it could be later in the day when everything was opened. There are tons of museums and places of interest along the way but I was determined to see the Panda's before the big crowds started to show up.

Along the way though I could not resist a small shrine dedicated to Inari - Gojōten Jinja (Hanazono Inari Jinja). It was not a large shrine but anything related to foxes (Kitsune) is always an attention getter for me.

I saw a couple people at Gojōten Jinja but not many. It seemed most people were just enjoying walking along them pathways and relaxing on the benches. After a quick prayer and a few pictures back to the Zoo saga.

At last I had made it to the zoo... That is when I noticed it was closed for the day. I had somehow forgotten it was closed on Mondays. So... I decided to go explore Ueno and think up plan B. The Ueno Zoo would need to wait 1 more day.

It was not a total loss though. I enjoyed walking in the park and next to the zoo I found Doraemon! It was a tiny amusement park for little kids which brought out the kid in me.
