Inokashira Park is one of the most beautiful open space for relaxation, with a wide pond in the scurried city of Tokyo. Located in the quiet outskirts between Kichijoji and Mitaka, you have a lot to do in this less-crowded park. It was founded on 1917.
The pond is wide enough to accommodate those who wanted to feed the ducks and carps while roaming around the park. There is also a small shrine beneath, called Benzaiten Shrine- a vivid and eyecatching shrine where you can rest for a bit.
Along the park, the summer food Kakigori (shaved ice topped with syrup and sweet fruit bits) is a quick find in this green oasis.
The park also has its own zoo you can visit. It is also just near Ghibli Museum, a popular destination for Studio Ghibli animation fans, and Daisei-ji Temple. It is also a bird watching spot, where non-migratory and local birds gather around.
The park can be easily accessed by train; alight to Kichijoji Station (JR East Chūō Main Line).
Admission to the park is free except for the pond (renting the swan boat); and the zoo.
