Kasai Rinkai Park Tours
Read MoreShow Less
Kasai Rinkai Park, Tokyo’s largest park, opened in 1989 on Tokyo Bay, a beautiful area that overlooks the water and the city beyond. Built on reclaimed land, the park was developed with conservation and preservation in mind.
The Diamond and Flowers Ferris Wheel is by far the park’s most famous site, an iconic behemoth that sits 383 feet (117 meters) tall. Any trip to the park is incomplete without the 17-minute ride on the famous structure, as the views from the top encompass all of Tokyo and the surrounding areas, including Mt Fuji on a clear day.
Also on site is the Tokyo Sealife Aquarium, which features an all-glass dome that transports visitors straight into the sea with fish and other aquatic life swimming above, around and below them. There is also the Sea Bird Sanctuary, an outdoor preserve that takes up nearly one-third of the park. Bird and nature lovers, as well as photographers, flock to the sanctuary to see local birds, and visitors are free to walk around and explore the whole area other than the protected marshes.
The closest subway stop to Kasai Rinkai Park is Kasai Rinkai Koen Station on the JR Keiyo line. The trip takes about 10 to 15 minutes from Tokyo Station. The ferris wheel is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and until 9 p.m. on weekends and holidays. Admission costs 700 yen ($7 USD). The aquarium is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The admission fee is also 700 yen with discounts for seniors and students.
