Went here on a rainy day to satisfy my wife's squirrel obsession. Not having seen many before in Australia, we thought they were hilarious. The open garden houses hundreds of squirrels, and the second you step outside they run over to get food off you - climbing and jumping and sneakily stealing whatever you have to offer them.
Staff were very polite (and understanding of our very limited Japanese speaking abilities!), and we had a good time. If we go back to Tokyo, we'll definitely check this out again.

Walked here from central Machida. Squirrel Park across the road, good for families with kids 400 ten entry fee. Yakushiike is free.This park does have a couple of places where you can buy food. But if you wish to purchase food and have a picnic is a good place to do so. A visit to the jinga at the top of the park. Will find very nice holymen wanting to explain the history of the amazing carvings within the building.
This park is alive in Sakura season, locals sit within the grounds and families celebrate.Really good piece of forest within a city. Upper trees date back hundreds of years.

There is a wonderful Shrine Sale on the First of every month (except January). It is a great place to find unique gifts and antiques. There are lots of vendors in an extremely close proximity to each other, so small children may have a difficult time.

This is a nice smaller museum which is devoted to graphic arts, A.K.A. prints. Mostly contemporary, with a strong emphasis on Japanese prints.
I have seen some outstanding temporary exhibits here, and some much less so. Skip the School exhibits unless you are a glutton for punishment. However, the end of December exhibit of work by college and university students is a good way to get acquainted with some cutting edge things. Also they have a sale of prints by these students, quite inexpensive, and once in a while you can pick up something from a kid with real talent.
It is located about 500 Km due east of the Machida JR Station, it is an easy uphill walk, just keep going straight down into the valley and at the bottom turn right and follow the little stream through the rather charming park until you come to the museum. Going back to the station requires a little more effort (climbing) but there are stairs located just to the north of the museum that make it not too bad. Obviously you can also take a taxi.
In January of each year they have an exhibit of the works donated to the museum during the preceeding 12 months which is sometimes interesting.
Give it a try, if nothing else it will expose you to some prints that are not the traditional ukiyoe.

A very nice park to visit in the middle of Machida. A short walk from the train and bus station. Located along a small valley including the slopes on the side. Various little pools and Gardens along the route. Birds and trees. Just missed the cherry blossoms which was disappointing. At one end is a museum with beautifully done large flower pots. I'm sure the park is quite busy on the weekend. Take your camera, you will surely find some good photos to take.
