#27 of 254 in Parks in Tokyo
Enjoy a boat ride and see more than 20 species of lotuses in Shinobazu Pond, a natural pond with a circumference of 2 km (1.4 mi). Having changed form several times through the ages, today the pond features three distinct areas, each with a specific feature. At Lotus Pond, snap pictures of the thick covering of peaceful plants covering the surface. Rent a rowboat or swan boat for a spin around Boat Pond. Cormorant Pond, which borders a zoo, is a habitat for many water birds, such as tufted ducks, pochards, and northern pintails. Take a walk over the bridge and visit the island with a temple that lies at the center of the lake. Make Shinobazu Pond a part of your Tokyo vacation plans using our Tokyo online trip maker .

  • Going from Ueno to Nezu, resting on a bench on the shores of the pond on the way, did a bit of reading. From Nezu side of Ueno Zoo along the lakeside is less traffic than the yushima vacant bench and relax you can feel the South-facing, sunny and Nice in the basking in the Sun is OK.

  • Beautiful place to retreat from the busy city. Great place to relax and watch others go about their hobbies (like painting and playing games). Nice for a walk or to soak up some sun.
  • Relaxing place for a fun outing, relaxing or walking. Boating is also possible. The lake is not deep so is covered by plants giving it an interesting look.
  • good place. can bring a small child here. many birds can be fed..
  • Such a nice place of ridding bike, taking walk and boating in the afternoon. Take your picnic stuff and a casual mood. you can stay here for an cozy afternoon.
  • Very cool and refreshing to rent a pedalo, provides a serene spot away from a very busy Tokyo. Very nice to feel a breeze when the rest of Tokyo is so hot and humid in July. Reasonable price of 600 yen for half an hour. Recommended.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
