Shinobazunoike Pond

The Shinobazunoike Pond is located on the west side in Ueno Park. It has been a famous area of cherry-blossom viewing since the Edo period. The bare sight of the pond in winter is changed completely in the rainy season after the cherry blossoms. The water will be covered with big leaves of lotuses and become the whole surface green.
