    For seascape, you can try Yokohama, areas near Kamakura, Enoshima.
    Or how about the nearby Odaiba?

    JR Ueno area quite nice. Can go Ameyoko market, there's a tent shop opens aft. 11am that sells sashimi don at very reasonable price.
    Then Ueno park may have hanami and streets vendors aligned around thousands of fully bloom cherry trees.
