Shinobazu Pond 不忍池

Ueno-koen, Taito City, Tokyo

A stunning lotus filled pond sitting in the heart of Ueno Park

Shinobazu Pond is a large natural pond filled with lush greenery and rich cultural importance. The pond has three sections, a duck pond—populated by ducks and other local waterbirds—a lotus pond, and a boat pond.

Sitting between the lotus and boat ponds is where you can rent out small paddle boats to admire the park from a different perspective. There are three different boats available for rent, row boats, pedal boats, and swan boats. The lotus flowers hit full bloom in July and August, but they only open between 7:00a.m. - 9:00a.m., so visit early to see them in all their glory.
