Enjoying The Spring Air at Shinobazu Pond

Just the other day, someone mentioned to me that it's been two years since we last went to Japan. Wow, someone was sure counting. XD

Well, it's only been 14 months, but that remark got me browsing our 2008 vacation photos. Here are some photos we took at Shinobazu Pond in Ueno Park in March last year.

We went to the Park on our last day in Tokyo before taking a night train to Kanazawa. The day was sunny and we did enjoy pedaling around the pond and enjoying the crisp cold Spring air.

Plenty of ducks sightings here, the live duck and the one that you have to pedal to move it around the pond. We didn't rent the swan type boat as the rental was higher (I think it was 100 yen more, but 100 yen = RM3.60 so it is a bit steep) than the normal ones (see the turqoise boat in the photo above).

Also saw a couple pedaling in a row boat but it was the girl who did all the pedaling. How chivalrous of the boyfriend. Not!

Three happy camper, pedaling in a boat. I'm wearing the exact same blouse as in the photo today.


  1. That's so much fun! Thanks for sharing!

    enjoy your weekend!

  2. @Ayie,
    It was fun! But I bet it will be too cold for us to go pedaling there again come December! :)

  3. I see the happy faces of the family! :D
    No going to Japan, the flu is on.

  4. @ECL,
    true. Saw the NHK news yesterday night about how school authorities have to decide whether to close school instead of a blanket closing for schools in districts. @_@

  5. Three very happy faces! :) Happy weekend.

  11. Nice duckeys, lol. xD

    For me I don't think swan boat is so nice. The neck blocking the front view. :\

  12. @Jim,
    ha! I didn't really thought of that! True lah - the swan's neck blocked the view.

  13. That was fun! I'm sure you had a great time with your family there. Does that makes you want to go there again?

  14. nice view there.. I wonder I wonder When I can go to your country and see it with my own eyes, since I`m kust a poor Indonesian :D

  15. @foong,
    Ueno Park always featured in our itinerary simply because there's a big toy store nearby it! LOL
    Going to Japan - definitely! Over and over again. :)

    @Blogger Rise,
    Do you mean Malaysia? :D Fares are cheap now.

    Going to Japan and anywhere else for that matter, is becoming cheaper nowadays.

  16. How nice that the pedal boats have a roof! :)
