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.
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.
