Located near Meguro Station the Institute for Nature Study (Shizen Kyōiku-en) is a nature reserve in the heart of Tokyo. The sights and sounds of the city are soon left behind when you enter the park. It is a wild, natural and quiet world despite the grounds being near the Yamanote Line and bordered by part of the Tokyo Metropolitan Expressway.

The aim of the Institute is to preserve the natural environment of Tokyo’s forests and marshlands. Although the grounds are used for research and education, anyone may enter and enjoy the park’s trails and natural beauty.

How to get there
The park is a ten minute walk from Meguro Station (JR Yamanote Line), Nanboku Subway Line (Tokyo Metro) and Mita Subway Line (Toei).

Open: 9:00 to 17:00 (16:30 from September through April)
Closed: Mondays (except on a national holiday)
The day after national holidays (except Saturdays and Sundays)
