Shiba Park is one of the oldest parks in Japan; it was one of the first parks established by Cabinet decree in 1873 along with Ueno, Asakusa, Fukagawa, and Asukayama Parks, and served as a model for the creation of future parks. It was originally a large park that included the grounds of Zojoji Temple, but due to the separation of religion and politics after World War II, the temple grounds were detached to form a circular park. As befits a park with such a long history, Shiba Park is home to many large trees including camphor, zelkova, and ginkgo trees.
