In this tour, you will experience making your own Bonsai with a Bonsai master in Tokyo.<br><br>What is Bonsai?<br>Bonsai is known as a work of “living art” in Japan, and it has been prominent in Japanese culture since long ago. Unlike planting trees in a field, Bonsai trees are delicately cultivated on a tray or bowl where the grower has more control of the size and amount of roots that grow and thus are able to confine the root systems and miniaturize trees.<br><br>Assistant will be waiting for you at Toei-Shinjuku line Mizue station south exit. Please meet with your assistant and go to Bonsai museum. This tour will be operated in Bonsai museum by professional bonsai artist. In case you want to ask many questions to them, no worry please do ask to our assistant and, he/she will be happy to translate.<br><br>With this activity, you can make your own Bonsai, but please make sure that many country does not allow to bring back sand and plant.

Chanced upon this mini zoo last year and I have to return here again cause I did not have enough time before it closes (at 4pm!) then. A mini zoo that offers quite a fair bit of animals to see - plus a petting area! Also, did I mention that it's free? About a 15-20 minutes walk from Nishi-Kasai Station.

We went here when we were passing by Edogawa. The animals looked well looked after especially for a zoo that is free to enter. Some animals were a bit bored but other animals were loving it! We didn’t watch a show as we went at lunch time.

This is NOT you typical zoo where animals come second to junk food and entertainment, even though this is a pretty small zoo it provides the kids with an occasion to learn, hear and watch. Having an educational mission the zoo provides fairly good explanations regarding each animal group. Kids can safely run free , if not exhausted they could go to the park adjacent to the zoo where food trucks might be available. Yes it s totally FREE for every one Japanese or foreigners, on your way back to the NishiKasai station your shopping desires could be answered at the AEON mall or at the Sunny Mall. It a leisurely 20 min walk from the station. Go and experience the other side of Japan away from the tourist attractions.

We walked here as we were staying nearby. This is Free to get in, yes really. It's well kept, clean and tidy and the animals actually seem happy. There is a children's petting area, the kids were loving it. It's not big but after the zoo there are nice grounds with a lake and some grass areas where you could have a picnic. We enjoyed the morning and couldn't believe that we hadn't spent a penny...in Tokyo!!

I was staying at Kinshicho area and wanted to visit nearby places of interest. Googled and found Edogawa Natural Zoo. Armed with mobile phone with wifi, we used Google Map to find our way to the zoo from Nishi-Kasai station. Walkable and the zoo was about 15 minutes away from the station. Of course, we got distracted a few times by the shops along the way, hence we may have taken slightly longer to get there. It is free to enter, so one could just start enjoying the zoo right away. Its visitors were mostly families with young kids. Or, sometimes the hobbyist who is into animal photography. The area is not very big and there were adequate varieties of animals such as monkeys, birds (owl, eagle, dove), red panda, ant-eater, prairie dogs, wallabies, and penguins. The petting zoo area was closed during our time of visit. It has certain timings on when it is available. Hence, do check it out prior to visit. Liked that soap and tap is provided for visitors to wash their hands after their session at the petting zoo. This area has goats, lamb, rabbits and chicken. The zoo is connected to Gyosen Park, so one could picnic or relax at the park before heading off.
