Inokashira Park Zoo

東京都井の頭自然文化園

Description

Tokyo’s Inogashira Park Zoo was opened in 1942. It consists of two areas: the main zoo, and an aquatic and botanical garden area. Over 170 animals can be found in the main zoo, including the Tsushima leopard cat that is listed as a natural treasure. You can also observe Japanese squirrels up close by actually entering the squirrel enclosure. One of the most popular attractions at the Park is the guinea pig petting zoo, where you can hold and pet one of the over 180 guinea pigs that are cared for at the zoo. Staff are always on duty and are prepared to assist anyone who is handling a small animal for the first time. At the aquatic and botanical gardens, you can find displays of natural treasures and the endemic species of Japan, such as the tanakia tanago (Tokyo bitterling) and other freshwater fish, amphibians which are preserved and breed.. Inogashira Park Zoo is approximately a 10-minute walk from Kichijoji Station on the JR Chuo Line, the Tozai Subway Line and the Keio Inokashira Line.
