This park houses the Tokyo Metropolitan Memorial Hall and Great Kanto Earthquake Memorial Museum. Both of these facilities convey the history of this park. The city of Tokyo purchased the site of a military clothing depot in 1922 after its functions were moved to a different location and was working to develop a park there. The Great Kanto Earthquake struck on September 1 of the following year during the midst of that development. When nearby residents evacuated to this site, fire spread through the household goods they brought with them, resulting in many people being burned to death. In memory of those who lost their lives and to commemorate the great work done to reconstruct Tokyo, the city built the Great Kanto Earthquake Memorial Hall (currently the Tokyo Metropolitan Memorial Hall) and Great Kanto Earthquake Memorial Museum.
