Tokyo Monorail Line Guide
The Tokyo Monorail Line has many verdant parks sparkling with water. At many of these, you can bask in nature's beauty. One such place, famous for bird watching, is the Tokyo Port Wild Bird Park, surrounded by ponds and greenery, which stretches over a kilometer east to west. Every year, you can see sandpipers, plovers, wild ducks, Northern Goshawks and more. There are many observation sheds around the park that are equipped with telescopes so that everyone can enjoy watching these beautiful animals.
