Kodomo no Mori Koen (子供の森）- better known as Dinosaur Park Shinagawa – is a fantastic place to take your dinosaur-loving kids. There are eight colorful dinosaurs in the park; a bright T-rex, large Hadrosaurid, Stegosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Dimetrodon to name a few, and plenty of space to run around.
We revisted the park over the sunny weekend. The kids enjoyed exploring the different dinosaurs, swinging on the rope swing and even watched a few innings of a JHS baseball game. They also enjoyed watching the trains and shinkansen go by while riding their bikes in the open area across the river from the park.
Dinosaur Park Shinagawa is filled with cherry blossoms in Spring, colorful leaves in autumn, and offers water play under the tall piping in summer. A great spot to take your kids all year round.
If you come by car there are three separate lots down the small street adjacent to the park. Train access is a short 5-min walk from the park.
