(140+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
A haven in the huge city, Shakujii Park offers large areas of lush greenery, equipped for peaceful strolls, leisurely boat rides, and affording some of the best birdwatching opportunities in the metropolis. With two large ponds, the park has attracted a wealth of bird life, with many examples of waterfowl making there home here. Be sure to bring along a pair of binoculars to get a good look at kingfishers, night herons, and cormorants, among others. Being the site of a ruined castle, which stood between the 10th and 12th centuries, the park houses several small Shinto shrines.
