Hibiya Park, Chiyoda Ward
The parkland used to be the palace area of the feudal lord, Matsudaira Bizennokami,up until the end of the Edo period. Then it served as a military drilling ground during the early part of the Meiji period. It was later designed and constructed as the first westernized urban-style park in Japan, and opened to the public in 1903.
Two outdoor music halls and the Hibiya public hall show enthusiasm of the park designer as a forerunner of culture. Now we can enjoy beautiful flowers all the year around in the center of Marunouchi, one of the hottest business town in Japan.
