Institute for Nature Study, National Museum of Nature and Science – Part 1

国立科学博物館附属自然教育園 Institute for Nature Study, National Museum of Nature and Science meguro tokyo japan

Next stop on our Grutt Pass tour of Tokyo was 国立科学博物館附属自然教育園. That’s a mouthful. It doesn’t get much better in English with “Institute for Nature Study, National Museum of Nature and Science.”

This place is walking distance from Meguro Station. If you are looking for an uncrowded piece of nature in Tokyo then this is it. We were even there on a Sunday afternoon (by far the worst time to visit such places), and it was still very peaceful. No more than 300 people are allowed into the 200,000 square meter area at a time which means you’ll have plenty of elbow room.

Linda and Ryan enjoyed one of the ponds on the grounds while an old Japanese couple ate a bento nearby.

The trees in this place are really beautiful. There are countless kinds. They were all still very green for us in early November, but the place must be even more gorgeous in late November when the colors change.

    One more place where I could have used the Grutt pass if I’d knew about it two years ago. When I went in late September 2007 it was ridiculously warm and humid, but still quite nice in the park.
    i took a nice picture of a butterfly there, back then still with my old camera:
