I went to Inokashira Park for the Ghibli Museum but took a stroll in it before and after my visit to the museum and it is indeed a great place to chill, hang out and have a quick snack whilst overlooking the pond. There is abundance of trees and even trail walks deeper into the park (you almost feel like... More

This park is beautiful, we had a great day exploring, riding on the pedal power boats. That was a good work out for the legs! Huge fish in the lake that come right up to you. Lovely water fountains in the middle of the lake, shops to buy food and drink. We visited the temple which like all temples was... More

I go to Inokashira park about once a month, it is a GREAT park. My favorite spot is, of course, the lake where you can ride swan shaped paddle boats (or traditional row boats) around the lake. It can be crowded on holidays (especially romantic holidays), so make sure to come early. It is especially beautiful during the spring or... More

This is a lovely woodsy park around a very large pond; self-powered swan boats are available as are rowboats. There is an athletic field nearby. Such a pleasure to stroll there on a nice day!.

This is a beautiful place! You can walk right around the two sections of the lake or take the short cut across the bridge to just walk part of it. The street leading down to the park from the station is fun too with groovy shops to explore. Take a paddle boat or just stroll around. There's a lovely red... More

When we lived in Japan, we used to take the kids here on the weekends sometimes. It was a nice, leisurely train ride from our apartment. The reasons I love this park are numerous, but to name a few... First, it is definitely quieter than Ueno park. Ueno is great for the zoo and museums, but this one is great... More

We walked around in this size able park for about an hour, just getting a break from all the buildings. You can rent a pedal boat on the lake and there are several playground areas for kids. We enjoyed a soda at a little restaurant near the west entrance to the park and zoo. We walked from this park to... More

It was a wonderful Spring Sunday and the weather was great, and we decided to go Sakura Hanami at Inokashira Park (井の頭恩賜公園), away from the famous city park like Ueno Park because we knew it would be crowded. However, when we reached Inokashira Park at the evening, the park was packed with people drinking and doing their hanami stuff under... More

Don't take your boy/girlfriend out on the lake in a boat. There is a famous jinx on those who do. You will split up.

A lovely little park with a weekend art market that makes browsing very pleasant - at the end of your walk up from the JR station.
