Green Tokyo

Today I went for a stroll in the neighbourhoods Meguro and Ebisu, and came across some very nice parks and green areas. On a hot day like today, these are the best places to go!

The National Science Museum of Tokyo has an institute for Nature Study, which basically is a huge park filled with a variety of trees, plants, flowers and all kinds of insects and birds. I went there and it was the most beautiful park in Tokyo I’ve seen so far.

It’s actually more of a forest than a park, with large ponds and even a swampy area. The noise coming from the busy streets surrounding the park were a bit of a shame, but still it was a beautiful place!!

The name of the park is “Shizen Kyoiku-En”. It’s in Meguro and really worth a visit!
