Meguro Park

Yesterday we went to a lovely park, just 7 minutes walk from Meguro station. I have been calling it Meguro Park, but apparently it's real name is the Institute for Nature Study. Most Japanese parks are extremely manicured and although they are beautiful, can be quite sterile. This one is definitely more like a nature reserve where the flora and fauna has been left to their own devices. It was almost like walking through a tropical forest in the heart of Tokyo, with crickets chirruping, birds singing and the "residents" basically loving their little haven in the city. There were also many big spiders in webs, which I tried to avoid as much as possible.........
If you look at the website, they have a great view of the park from above.
