Inokashira Park is a large wooded park near Kichijoji Station. The centerpiece of the park is a large pond on which you can paddle a giant swan or row a small 2 person boat.

The park is particularly popular during cherry blossom season because of the large number of mature sakura trees lining the pond. The park is also popular with musicians and performers, who line the paths – especially on weekends.

In addition to the normal park attractions, there is also a small zoo. The Ghibli Museum is located next to the park.
