Inokashira Park Zoo井の頭自然文化園


This is a zoo occupying approximately one-third of Inokashira Onshi Koen (Inokashira Park) in Tokyo’s Musashino City. It is famous for its elephant Hanako, who had lived for a long time, passed away in 2016. Inside the park are small paths where the squirrels roam free, a petting corner, and a square where visitors can search for wildlife (Sundays 11 am-12 pm. Second Sunday only from January-March and November-December) and displays for the very popular capybara. In the separate zoo are exhibits of aquatic animals such as fish, amphibians, insects and waterfowl. Altogether both zoos keep more than 200 species of animals.

Review of Inokashira Park Zoo

Reviewed:2019/06/14 A place to pass the time
The zoo itself isnt anything special but, a nice place to pass the time, a surprising thing was that there is an statue museum inside.
Reviewed:2019/05/02 Really good place to visit with Kids
We had a great time at Inokashira Parks... both the parks... the aquatic life park as well as the zoo are good and very well maintained. The best thing I liked about them was the size of both of...
Reviewed:2019/04/19 A nice way to pass an hour
The Inokashira park zoo consists of two small areas

It is really cheap to get in, and tourists get 20% discount on producing passports. Entry is approx ¥400 each.

The zoo wont compare to larger...

          The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It’s hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world’s tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you’re in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
