Boating in Ueno Park

July 18, 2012

Boats on Shinobaze Pond, Ueno Park.

We could never be accused of lacking variety here at Tokyoyo!

From the Shibuya club scene we move seamlessly on to boat rides in the park. In this case Ueno Park in Taito ku Tokyo.

The photo above shows some of the small pleasure boats available for hire on Shinobaze Pond (不忍池).

Ueno Park is located fairly centrally and is close to Ueno station  which is serviced by the Yamanote line as well as a number of underground lines making it quite easy to access. See here for a map.

There are three different types of boat available and examples of all of them can be seen in the above photo.

1. Row boats. Only for those confident of their seafaring abilities! These can take up to 3 adults and cost 600 Yen for an hour.

2. Basic cycle boats carry 2 people and cost 600 Yen for 30 minutes.

3. Swan Boats take up to 2 people and cost 700 Yen for 30 minutes.

In this hot weather there is no better place to be (except when it rains!).

See you on the high seas!
