Tokyo Port Wild Bird Park is a small(24.9ha) but well designed bird park. This Tokyo Metropolitan Government owned park was created in 1978 on a landfill area reclaimed from shallow water in Tokyo Bay. The original development aim was to represent typical bird habitats of greater Tokyo. Nowadays visitors can enjoy a variety of habitats including thick forest, open forest, paddy field, grassland, marsh, pond and tidal flats and their common birds. 226 bird species have been seen here.
The park development process is, however, still underway.
We therefore invite you to visit and discuss with us the park’s future and give us your suggestions. To provide appropriate service for foreign visitors is currently one of our major project.
The park is actually the protected area nearest to Tokyo International Airport (Haneda). Ryutsu Center Station on the Tokyo Monorail, a 15-minute walk from the park, is between Haneda and downtown Tokyo. If you have time, a few hours, before you leave Japan, why not plan your last birdwatching in Japan in our park? We are ready to guide you!
