In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
Volunteers and professional landscapers worked together to return a small part of Tokyo back to the wild. Akabane Nature Observation Park was created to allow visitors a chance to experience Tokyo without the concrete and train tracks.
The park features a natural spring, a pond filled with turtles and an acorn wood filled with trees native to the area. If you need a breather from Tokyo's sprawling infrastructure this is a good getaway.
Akabane Station is the nearest station to the park. It is about a 25-minute walk so arriving by bus or taxi is recommended.
For updated information on opening hours, closings, prices, and more, please check the official website or ask the facility directly.
