Came here on a Friday morning and there were so many people doing all sorts of activities. I can only assume they were from the neighborhood. There were plenty of joggers and strollers as with any large park. From my readings, this park was gifted to the people of Tokyo from the Emperor. This park also houses the Ghibli Museum... More

This is a very popular community park close to Kichijoji railway station ( 5 minutes walk) Recommended to walk in the morning or evening hearing lots of birds singing or walk in the daytime with cool air under the shades of trees in Summer or enjoy sunshine in Winter. You will love this place year round.

Beautiful on weekends, or before / after shopping in Kichijouji. Well kept and nice lake with swan pedal boats / rowing boats. No Fee! (unless I overlooked something). Been there also late evening for dinner, the bridge over the lake is illuminated, looks very nice. Can;t wait to get a chance to go during cherry blossom. When you check out... More

This is a large well maintained park a short walk down a narrow lane from the South exit of Kichijoji Station on the JR Chuo line. I have visited there many times through the years and always enjoy the people watching and the interaction with the many dogs being walked there. A pleasant place to spend a few hours when... More

Recommended time to visit this park: mornings on weekdays. Thats when you get to enjoy the peace and quiet and relax. If you go there early in the morning, around 6:30, you could join in the "RADIO TAISO" with the locals. It's open for everyone. On weekends, especially if the weather is fine, this park becomes very crowded and active.... More

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
