About Hibiya Park
Hibiya Park is located in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Japan, and is managed by the Tokyo Metropolitan Parks Association, a consortium under the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Construction Bureau. Established in 1903, the park covers a total area of 161,636.66 square meters, and is a modern western-style city park built according to Japan’s first city plan, and is one of the most important parks for the people of Chiyoda Ward to take a walk and relax.
Hibiya Park was used as a training ground for the Army’s Konoha Division during the Meiji Era, and was later designed by Honda Shizuru and opened on June 1, 1903 as Japan’s first German-style modern park. In addition to public facilities such as the City Hall, Hibiya Guild Hall, the Great and Small Field Music Halls, the Hibiya Library, and tennis courts, the park also has green lawns, colorful flowerbeds, a heart-shaped pond preserved from the Edo period, and a forest of ginkgo trees, with red flowers, green grass, and white fountains, making it a picturesque park throughout the year. Various large-scale events are often held in Hibiya Park, and the first (1954) to the fourth (1957) Tokyo Motor Show (formerly known as the Japan Auto Show) was held here.
