Blossoms in Ueno Park

Spring is here!  After several days of rain, the sky opened up... at least for a short time. Hanami is not far away.

On Friday, I took advantage and checked out the sakura (cherry blossoms) in Ueno Park.  It's probably a week till it will be peak viewing (and drinking) in the park, but I will not have the chance to return for a second viewing.  Oh well, these photos will have to do.

This is the main thoroughfare through Ueno Park.

There were plenty of crowds walking through the park.

Here are some closeups.

A little closer.

And even a little closer.
