Hibiya Park

Hibiya park was laid out in 1903 as the first western-style park in Tokyo. The park is located in the heart of the city surrounded by business and government buildings. But it is so relaxing in the park that you will forget you are in the middle of the big city.

The area of 16ha consists of two western-style gardens always full of flowers and two Japanese-style gardens with little ponds. Hibiya public hall, one of the oldest concert hall in Japan, is standing in the south of the park. There is a library building next to the hall.

There is a big fountain that spouts water 12m into the air
refreshing you with a fine spray.
Western garden next to the fountain is full of flowers all year round.

There is an open air concert facility next to the big fountain.
If your timing is right, you will catch an open concert during lunchtime
or in the summer evening.

There is a Japanese-style garden with a pond near the main entrance.
It was made using the old moat and stone wall of Edo castle.
