"Tokyo Birding"
Let's enjoy bird watching in the center of urban Tokyo

"Come visit the wildlife conservation area that is closest to Haneda International Airport."

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 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 Report

"Forest & Bird Watching"
Feb 18, 2018

The Bird Park hosted the Forest and Birdwatching English Speaker’s Event on Feb 18, 2018. It was a small group but very diverse with people who are now living in Japan but originally from London, the Netherlands, Hong Kong USA and Japan.

A total of 20 birds were spotted during the walk. After a quick ice-breaker and orientation of each member, the group left the Nature Center heading down to the observation blinds #1 & #2, seeing large numbers of coots and a few diving ducks. Then the rangers allowed the group into the closed area which is currently under construction, so hard hats were distributed to everyone. The park is currently restoring some shoreline into a mudflat with the hopes that shoreline birds would be attracted to it in the future. It was unusual to bird while hearing the bulky hard hats.

The group then moved to the west side of the park walking through the model gardens which show off the traditional lifestyle of Japanese society. The movement of “Satoyama” is a campaign to return people living in harmony with nature (through wise-use agriculture). The bird blind on the west side offered a nice look at the Durian Redstart (jyobitaki) and a flock of mallards.

In the afternoon, everyone enjoyed an informal chat over a brown bag lunch. A slide show presentation was shared by visiting WWF staff member Ms Fion Cheung, from Maipo Nature Reseve in Hong Kong. Many participants were happy to hear about the history and wildlife conservation efforts as well as challenges facing other wildlife parks in other parts of the world. With the remaining time, Chief Ranger Dr. Saigawa shared some of his wildlife vet experiences in Zambia & Kenya during his time there and closed the event with final words.
