Enjoy a boat ride and see more than 20 species of lotuses in Shinobazu Pond, a natural pond with a circumference of 2 km (1.4 mi). Having changed form several times through the ages, today the pond features three distinct areas, each with a specific feature. At Lotus Pond, snap pictures of the thick covering of peaceful plants covering the surface. Rent a rowboat or swan boat for a spin around Boat Pond. Cormorant Pond, which borders a zoo, is a habitat for many water birds, such as tufted ducks, pochards, and northern pintails. Take a walk over the bridge and visit the island with a temple that lies at the center of the lake. Make Shinobazu Pond a part of your Tokyo vacation plans using our Tokyo online trip maker .

以前は、池に浮かぶ蓮の花が、とてもいい感じでした。しかし、いまや「蓮の森」と化しており、水面が見えません！とはいえ、高い建物が少なく、青空が広がる景観は素敵だな、と感じました。 more »In the past, lotus flowers floating in the pond were very nice. However, it has now become a lotus forest, and the surface of the water cannot be seen. Nevertheless, there are few tall buildings, and I felt that the scenery with blue sky was wonderful.
The lake is beautiful. Full of massive fish and numerous aquatic birds. The walk around is lovely and the paddle boats are an awesome way to see everything from another perspective. There are wonderful food stalls near the Bentendo temple that I absolutely recommend. So close to museums, art galleries and the zoo. A peaceful place to spend some time, especially with little ones.
You gotta see the sunset here at Winter. By happenstance we arrived just before dusk and saw the full golden beauty of the Winter pond. Perfection.
