Shiba Park 芝公園

Stroll through one of Japan's most venerable parks

Established in 1873, Shiba Park is one of the oldest parks in Japan, and is still home to several ancient trees including a giant ginkgo believed to have been planted by the shogun Iemitsu Tokugawa. You can visit Shiba Tosho-gu Shrine and nearby Tokyo Tower—technically not in the park—providing you with an interesting contrast of the traditional and modern.

The park it is particularly beautiful during the cherry blossom and autumn seasons, when the Momiji-dani (Autumn Leaf Valley) section comes alive with vivid gold and red leaves.
