Park Overview

Port of Tokyo Wild Bird Park

The park facing the port of Tokyo features various restored environments replicate the middle and downstream environments of a river. Each year, seabirds and small birds including the sandpiper, plovers, and seagulls as well as hawks visit the park. Annually, some 120 different species and some 226 species of wild birds have been observed since the opening of the park (as of June 2013).
In addition to wild birds, the park also is ideal for observing wildlife prone to seaside environments, crabs and various other mudflat wildlife, as well as insects that inhabit marsh and forest land. The open grass field and Nature Center feature benches and tables to allow for pleasurable nature observation.
Also, various events are held at the part, particularly on Saturdays and Sundays.

  • Volunteer guides patrol the park to provide visitors with explanations on the natural environment.
  • Staff-led observation tours are available for group visitors (reservation required). See group visitor information for details.

History of the Wild Bird Park

The Port of Tokyo Wild Bird Park was created using natural land reclaimed from the Port of Tokyo landfill. Adjacent to the Ota Market (central market in Tokyo Metro area), the land area is a vast 24.9 hectares.
Originally, this location was shallow ocean waters but work to fill in the land began in the late 1960’s. Following completion of landfill work, rainwater build up led to the formation of ponds and open field waters.
On June 17, 2000, the park became part of the vital ecosystem network for sandpipers and plovers, which led to international recognition for the park.
