Located in a quiet and distinctive suburb of Tokyo, Inokashira Park Zoo exhibits a variety of Japanese species as well as an Asiatic elephant and tropical birds. It contributes to conservation and breeding of Japanese squirrels, mandarin ducks, and swans.
At the center of the zoo, red-crowned cranes and Yaku deer range freely. "Hanako" the Asiatic elephant is the first elephant which came to Japan after WWII. We also exhibit Amur cats, Japanese serows, rhesus monkeys and raccoons.
We exhibit Japanese freshwater fish and insects at the Aquatic Life House. Near the House, you can enjoy beautiful plumage of ducks, geese, swans, and cranes. In an effort to restore wild population of mandarin ducks, we are trying to breed and release them in the park.
The park also comprises a botanical garden, a small pleisure ground, the library owned by Japanese poet Ujo Noguchi, and the Seibo Kitamura (Japanese sculptor) Museum.
Asiatic elephants, rhesus monkeys, raccoons, fennecs, Japanese serows, Japanese martens, masked palm civets, Amur cats, raccoon dogs, Japanese squirrels, red-crowned cranes, Japanese birds, tropical birds, mandarin ducks, swans, etc.
