More than 230 species of waterfowl and other wild birds have been observed in the park since its opening in 1989.

There is also an area of a traditional Japanese landscape with rice fields, brooks and vegetable fields to provide habitat for insects and aqua creatures. The park became part of the East Asian-Australasian Flyway Network in 2000 with the mission to provide habitat for migratory birds such as plovers, sandpipers and other shorebirds.

The place is nice and you can take a fresh breath out of busy Tokyo city.. But unfortunately I didn't see many birds.. I t is true that there are lots of birds but they are a bit far from the visitors accessible area.. So you need a pro cam to take photos or binoculars to see them properly.. The time I was visiting, one viewing spot was closed due to some repair. Haneda airport is near, so u can always see airplanes in the sky taking circles.. Lovely place.

Excellent birding spot in Tokyo. Access using the Tokyo Monorail. Good natural place to spend 3-4 hours.

This is a surprising place to find, given the location, which is the south end of a island of recovered land. The bulk of the island is given over to shipping containers. The park itself is loud, but it's still possible to see many birds on the tidal mud flats, as well as mudskippers, crabs, and lizards. Be wary of the Google direction, which direct you to an inconvenient place, as well as of the bus stop map handed out at the information center, which is wildly inaccurate.

An oasis for birds and birders in southwest Tokyo, the park has a small fee (JY300 for adults), but it offers an excellent birding experience worth far more. Despite being surrounded by freight terminals and warehouses, the grounds are lush, well-maintained, and with a half dozen high quality blinds (many of which have good spotting scopes available for use) and a beautiful Nature Center that overlooks the largest tidal pond and allows comfortable birding no matter the weather. It is easily accessed by public transport. Just keep in mind that its hours are 9-5, and you can't go in after 4:30. They even give you a checklist of the most common birds, and most blinds have ID guides on the wall. A great choice for a visiting birder who only has a few hours to spare.
