Hibiya Park 日比谷公園

Hibiya Park, Chiyoda City, Tokyo

An oasis of calm and Japan's first Western-style park

Hibiya Park with its carefully maintained trees, grass lawns and flower beds, is an oasis of calm in the heart of the city. It is within easy walking distance of the Imperial Palace and Ginza and can be combined with numerous other nearby attractions.

Tips

  • June 1, 2023 marked the 120th anniversary of the park’s opening. Created as Japan’s first Western-style park, Hibiya Park is inscribed with long years of rich history
  • A beloved oasis attracting many people to take a break from the bustling business streets of Tokyo

The vast, 16-hectare Hibiya Park has a rich history: It was feudal grounds during the Edo period (1603–1867) and then a military parade square in much of the Meiji era (1868–1912) before it was converted into Japan's first Western-inspired modern park in 1903. Today, there are thousands of tall trees, including a gingko tree known as the "kubi-kake gingko" that is estimated to be about 500 years old.

Certain areas of the park may be closed or have event restrictions due to ongoing maintenance work, such as the work that began on the Second Flower Garden in September 2023.
