Inokashira Park


Museums & Attractions



Located just 15 minutes from the centre of Tokyo, this Kichijoji park has more than enough to occupy you for an afternoon, including a zoo, a pond with amusingly shaped rental boats, and playground facilities to keep the little ones happy. The south side is home to the Studio Ghibli museum – a must-visit for anime fans – and at weekends the park comes alive with street traders, musicians and artists. In late March and early April it fills with people enjoying hanami (cherry-blossom viewing), and it’s worth making the trip to join them.
