Shinobazu Pond, Taito
(3.6/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy a boat ride and see more than 20 species of lotuses in Shinobazu Pond, a natural pond with a circumference of 2 km (1.4 mi). Having changed form several times through the ages, today the pond features three distinct areas, each with a specific feature. At Lotus Pond, snap pictures of the thick covering of peaceful plants covering the surface. Rent a rowboat or swan boat for a spin around Boat Pond. Cormorant Pond, which borders a zoo, is a habitat for many water birds, such as tufted ducks, pochards, and northern pintails. Take a walk over the bridge and visit the island with a temple that lies at the center of the lake.

  • Became a place of relaxation in the neighborhood of great or doing entertainment on weekends and is one of the most vibrant just to walk along the shore of the pond just healed

  • Shinobazu pond or 不忍池 Shinobazu no Ike is a natural body of water and is part of Ueno park. It has a peaceful, tranquil atmosphere except during Cherry blossom season where it is full of parties and eating stalls.
  • The pond itself is divided into two smaller parts. The smaller one allows for swan boat riding, while the bigger one is covered in lily pads, which creats a really great scenery together with the shrine and the skyscrapers. However, from autumn till spring it is rather less exciting.
  • Very beautiful and serene lily pad pond. If you look closely there are koi fish in the pond. There is also a temple/shrine in the middle of the pond. Nice place for a stroll or run.
  • Nice lake. You can ride boat here. It was crowded last time i went here. Because it is spring and hanami season.
  • On a nice day, the sun was warm and the wind was comfortable. It's quite comfortable to sit next to the pond and enjoy the sun and wind.
