Ueno Shrine

The name of this shrine escapes me... but it was right near the Ueno Zoo that we visited on Saturday (along with the entire population of Tokyo it seems). It was so busy!! All those plants are growing in the pond, it's odd, it looked like a field of some sort but truly it's a pond growing sea-weeds or something! Peeking over the railing I saw big ugly carp! We tried our skills at offering and praying at the shrine, but I got confused how many gong rings, claps, and bows we were supposed to do.
