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.

  • Weekends, especially boating pond area is crowded with many people, but can walk during the week. Especially Sambo pond area can walk slowly around the pond road less visitors.

  • Since I came on a school trip, came to 60 years Buri. There was no memory. Have each House facing the shakujii is one House per acre, envy opposing ballpark from the House side of the Park is like a garden of their own comings and goings free, which I also envy. Ball diamond dual and both had a game. City Park with two baseball fields, saw for the first time. With the camera turned on it, and very nearly 10 photographers lens comes "white-eyes" on plenty of persimmon trees are targeting. This Park is in Toshima-Ku, there is no Park envious.

  • A nice place to relax if you're in the neighborhood (in my case, usually after eating tsukemen at Inosho).
  • At Metropolitan Park, was in good condition, the shakujii and three ponds is located. Pond is the boat to ride the shakujii and natural monument of wetland plant communities into ponds. Park coppice Hill are remains of shakujii Castle. Sanpo Temple on the pond, sanpo temple there. It is famous as 5, IRIS is beautiful and Kingfisher pond. Three treasure Temple pond and Itsukushima Shinto shrine, God of water, that people in wheelchairs could patrol walkway deck has prepared a significant portion of the perimeter of the pond.

  • It is a quiet Park and Tokyo seems unlikely. Big pond boat hire available. Because athletics is recommended for families with small children. Trail around the pond has a relaxed stroll, guests can observe the fauna and flora. In shops as well as light meals are also served.

  • It is good to explore the Park. Lushly mountain greenery and well cared for. Children's elementary school lower grades in easy-to-play, athletic park has play equipment. There are 5 types of athletic, but is comparatively simple to elementary school students. Some children in front of the ballpark to play jungle gym and swings. I think new playground equipment, safe.
