Let's enjoy bird watching in the center of Greater Tokyo

Tokyo Port Wild Bird Park has many wild birds and tidal animals that are protected within the park. The reclaimed land that has regenerated naturally had been protected with the hope and efforts of long term conservation efforts made by the local citizens.

Every year, shorebirds, ducks, waterfowl and songbirds can be seen here. Since 1990, 226 species of birds have been recorded in the park (as of March 2015).

For Our Visitors

We welcome visitors from around the world and local residents to our Bird Park. The Nature Center has been newly renovated and we have Rangers from the Wild Bird Society of Japan who can provide you with information about the birds, the wildlife and the natural history of the park.
There are also volunteer park guides who can provide information about the park and its resources.

If you would like to visit the park with an English speaking guide, arrangements can be made (one week in advance) for guided park visits. Group tours can also be accommodated but one month advanced notice is needed to schedule the personnel. Please email us at yachokouen@wbsj.org.

If you are a foreigner visiting Tokyo, please ask your hotel concierge about the Tokyo Port Wild Bird Park. They will perhaps help you contact us and help you with directions for getting to the park.

We look forward to welcoming you!

Event

Secrets of the Wild Thickets
Wild Thickets Series II - Grassland Hitchhikers Growing Wild in the Wild Bird Park






Date: October 22, Sunday 10 AM - 12 PM (Rain or Shine)

Grasses, when left to their own devices in nature, tend to grow wildly and uncontrollably. Here at the Wild Bird Park, in Ecological Garden, there are certain areas where they are allowed to do so. If and when you walk through these overgrown thickets, you'll notice the hitchhikers on your clothes and shoes and even on your shoelaces! If you have pets who roam around outside, you are sure to be familiar with these pesky things!

The Park Rangers will talk about why they exist, and what are these grass hitchhikers and burrs are all about. Many are actually hooked seeds that are looking for a unique way to be dispersed into a new area. The Rangers will also explain about plant ecology and plant succession -which is the transition of grasslands into forests over time.

As one of the highlights of the event, enjoy a special cup of coffee from South East Asia! This little brew is actually pretty famous because the beans are gathered from a mysterious processing method - animal dung! Perhaps you have heard of this type of coffee already, but if you are brave enough to try a taste, please join us! You can learn more about it from our Rangers as you sip on this special blend! (FYI - drinking the coffee is not required to join the event!)

Target Audience: Individuals and Familes with kids aged over Elementary 3rd grade and up.
