Tokyo Day 3: Ueno Park and Akihabara

From doing a city tour yesterday, we decided to visit Tokyo’s famous Ueno Park. 

Ueno Park prides its rows of cherry blossom trees during springtime. However, we were in Tokyo last February, which is still considered as wintertime, and most of the trees have not yet bloomed. We were still lucky enough to see a few trees which had started to bloom already. 

I can just imagine how magnificent the park will look like in spring.

We spent half a day at the park, just walking around and taking in the scenery. I wish Manila had more parks like this, where families can unwind and bond together after a full week of work. 

There is also a zoo inside the park, which we decided to skip.



By noon, we headed to Akihabara, which is famous for electronics and toys. JM got a few Gundam plastic model kits, and we bought some scale model cars for my brother.

While walking in Akihabara, we came across a small stall selling Pablo mini cheesecakes. I got the classic flavor and JM got matcha flavor. The cheesecake is so soft that it melts in your mouth. I liked the classic flavor; the matcha flavor, not so much.

It was starting to get dark when we decided to call it a day and get back to the hotel.
