One of Japan's most crowded, noisy and popular cherry blossom spots, Ueno Park features more than 1000 trees along the street leading towards the National Museum and around Shinobazu Pond. Rather than the poetic, quiet, contemplative scene that one might expect, the sake-fueled revelry goes into the night with companies celebrating springtime with karaoke sessions in this type of hanami or cherry blossom viewing party.
