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 the weather allows.

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. If you don't mind the crowd, it would be fun to walk around the pond while eating ice cream cones, watch street performers do their thing, and maybe visit the small and charmiming zoo.

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 you're in a forest instead) and there are restaurants and snack shops. The main attraction of this park besides Ghibli Museum is the boat ride. They have swan shaped paddle boats, regular paddle boats and row boats which is an incredibly fun activity to do - a great change from shopping at Tokyo. The swan boats are 700JPY, paddle boats and row boats are 600JPY for 30 minutes and you get a different view of the park plus good bonding time with the ducks!

I went with my boyfriend so it was a good activity to do as a couple and we really enjoyed the intimacy! Really fun dating activity to do if you are there and a thoroughly fun experience!

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 lovely. Highly recommend this place, would love to go here again.

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 fall, when flowers are blooming or leaves are changing color.

All around the park, they have tons of free performances (magic shows, musicians, balloon animals) that are great for kids or couples.

There's a nearby (cheap) zoo too, which is great to visit afterwards.
