Yumenoshima Park, Tokyo - Yumenoshima Tropical Greenhouse Dome

Exhibits Featuring Tropical Rainforest Plants and Ogasawara Endemic Species, Including the World’s Tallest Tree Variety “Royal Palm” and the World’s Largest Bamboo Variety “Giant Bamboo”

Botanical Garden

Yumenoshima Tropical Greenhouse Dome is a botanical garden located on Yumenoshima that has been modeled after a rainforest. There are plenty of exciting things to see, including the so-called three sacred trees of Buddhism “sal tree,” “Ashoka tree,” and “sacred fig,” as well as “jacaranda,” one of the three largest flowering trees in the world. You’ll also find Ogasawara endemic species that can only be seen here at Yumenoshima Tropical Greenhouse Dome, including “Pandanus boninensis,” as well as various endangered species.

The negative ions emitted from the enormous waterfall in the A-Dome as well as the phytoncides from the plants are also popular reasons to visit.

Bougainvillea are among the flora along the outer wall of the office building, and the way that their flowers do not die even through the winter is a rarity in Tokyo. “Strelitzia reginae,” otherwise known as the bird of paradise flower, can be found blooming in the three flowerbeds in front of the entrance, another rare bloom in Tokyo’s open air.

There is also a Japanese honey bee hive located in the rear of the herb garden, and it sells a limited quantity of rare Yumenoshima Japanese honeybee honey.

In order to accommodate foreign tourists, Yumenoshima Tropical Greenhouse Dome has adopted pictograms that comply with Tokyo’s standard for information signs and has installed ticket vending machines that can be operated in 5 languages. Pamphlets for Yumenoshima Park are available in 2 languages, while pamphlets for Yumenoshima Tropical Greenhouse Dome are available in 5 languages.
