The Institute for Nature Study 国立科学博物館 附属自然教育園

5-21-5 Shirokanedai, Minato-ku, Tokyo

A beautiful green space for relaxation and education

The Institute for Nature Study is far greener than its name may suggest. This green park is carefully cultivated year-round with seasonal varieties of plants and vegetation.

What began as a grand house in the 1500s has now been opened to the public. Not only can you relax and unwind, but you can learn about the wide varieties of wildlife and greenery from the information boards dotted around the park.
