Machida Squirrel Garden町田リス園

In this small zoo located in the Kanaimachi district of Tokyo’s Machida City, approximately 200 Taiwanese squirrels and chipmunks have free range of the premises. In addition to putting on gloves and enjoying the experience of squirrels eating out of your hand, there is also an area to see familiar animals such as guinea pigs, rabbits, and turtles. The “Fureai Hiroba” event in which guests can hold rabbits and guinea pigs is only held on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. The docile guinea pigs are quite popular among small children.

          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.
