Laid Back Picnic - English -

I enjoy picnics around Tokyo

Inokashira Park with zoo and boat @KICHIJOJI


Swan boat in Inokashira Park

Inokashira Park has a pond and a zoo, and you can enjoy the atmosphere of old town in Tokyo.
The park is close to the station and there are many cafes around it.

About Inokashira Park

Inokashira Park is about 15 minutes from Shinjuku by JR Chuo Line's rapid train.
The town famous for having the Ghibli Museum.
While walking in Inokashira Park you can go to Ghibli Museum.
There are many restaurants around the Kichijoji station so I think we can enjoy it all day.


Today's autumn leaves

  • About 170% autumn leaves (Autumn leaves will end soon)
  • Currently seen colors:Red、Yellow

2018 is over in a week.
It is very rare to see autumn leaves during this season.😲

Nearby cafe

I mistook the way, at that time I met a nice cafe.
The name of the cafe is "Mash Iro".
It means "very white" in Japanese.

It is a small cafe where quiche and baked goods are lined up.

I will introduce the cafe in the next article, so I will put a link later.
