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!
