Place was abuzz with loads of people, families as there was a Melon Run. Nice scenes around this lake hugging Kairakuen Gardens. Spend some time here if can spare it.

Walked the length of the lake back from karakuien park to mito jr station. Pleasant walk and even though it was the end of Sakura season. The trees were still beautiful. We even saw swans nesting and saw their eggs ! Great spring leisure walk

There was not much to do in Mito; but spending an afternoon around Lake Senba was lovely nonetheless. Watching the sun go down was just as exhilarating as always.
