“Traditional, historical, fun - the best of the Japanese park experience”
Review of Himonya Park

Himonya Park
Ranked #13 of 110 things to do in Meguro
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 April 2015

This is one of those classic Japanese parks which is small but has everything you could possibly want, especially for an afternoon with the kids. A key highlight is a cute little petting zoo which has rabbits, dogs and gunie pigs to hold - very quaint, small and with friendly staff. Then, as you stroll around, you see an immaculately maintained park with a playground, a small template in the middle - and the showcase is the lake in the center where you can rent rowboats for just JPY200 (that's under US$2!) - and that's all the time you need for this tiny pond. This is a local treasure and pleasure. the only challenge i see is access. i couldn't figure out the trains without a major walk so i took a taxi, which from downtown Tokyo, is a bit expensive. So, this place is a bit remote - but worth the journey to get away. Again, perfect for kids.

The heart of this part is a pond that is the source of the Tachiaikawa River (although the river now flows underground in its upper reaches, so the outflow from the pond here isn't visible). The pond is home to fish, turtles and waterfowl as well as a small shrine on an island. It's pleasant to stroll around the pond and sometimes it's possible to rent a paddle boat and get onto the pond, too. The other highlight of the park is the small petting zoo in one corner.
