We were very lucky that the park only had about 10 visitors on the day, maybe because it was raining. Was a bit disappointed at first because None of the Squirrels were interested in the food we had brought to feed them. But once the...More

Small entrance fee. Squirrels running around everywhere. Very popular with families,though if you enjoy squirrels it is nice to see. They have many nooks for the squirrels to live in. You can purchase some food to feed the squirrels, they will climb on you be...More

A bit of a walk from a train station, but a nice place to explore. You may consider taking a bus to get here. A few restaurants within walking distance. Bringing a snack in your bag may be a good idea.

Well this is a very cute little park. Kids will nuts at this place. Lots squirrels to see and feed. Also they have turtles here as well. Hard to get here if you don't have a car.

The squirrel garden was interesting, but not really worth the yen in transportation and entrance fees. The place seemed rather run down and much smaller than anticipated. The main squirrel garden was quite a sight and experience. I'd highly advise wearing long pants and maybe...More

The squirrel garden is one of the many examples of how the smallest of things are converted to a brilliant experience. The park is a must-go for kids. They will enjoy feeding the squirrels (you can buy nuts inside the park for 100 yen) and...More
