Early April Ueno Park Tsutendo and Ninja Pond There are many shrub cherry blossoms on the promenade surrounding the pond, so it is a good place to take a two-shot with the cherry blossoms. The sun was setting on the way from the park to the temple, and by the time we passed through the temple and came out on the promenade, lights began to light up here and there. While enjoying the illuminated cherry blossoms at night, I turned around for about half a circle, and the scenery unique to the magic hour, which made me feel like an oasis in the city, was reflected in the water mirror. It seemed that an idol was performing live at a nearby stadium, and the cheerful and cute voices of cheerleading echoed through the pond, making people who came and went smile. At the beginning of the evening, it seems that the bustle has only just begun.
