Katsurazaka Wild Bird Refuge

Highlight
A very popular spot for birdwatchers wanting to meet 100 species of birds

A wild bird sanctuary in the midst of a nature-filled residential area

Home to some 100 kinds of wild birds - including the Japanese white-eye, Oriental turtle dove and kingfisher - this refuge is the first one in Japan to be located in a residential area. In this case, the residential area skirts the hills around Katsurazaka, making it a great bird watching spot.
The refuge is divided into two zones, a bird sanctuary zone and hill zone with three hiking courses, both designed for bird watching and the fun of strolling. Within the sanctuary zone there are three sub zones: a pond and wetland zone, a floating island zone in the pond, and flatland zone. All of which are environments furbished for birds. There is a bird hide for watching birds enjoying the freedom of the natural habitat, which has many flowers and trees to offer a full range of seasonal flowering joys and the burnished blaze of autumn hues.
