Japan’s Oldest Western-Style Park with an Iconic Huge Fountain
Hibiya Park is Japan’s oldest Western-style park, and it opened in 1903. Its large area covers 16 hectares, and since it’s filled with trees, grassy areas, and colorful blooming flowers, it’s a popular place to relax in the business district.
The most iconic part of Hibiya Park is its huge fountain. From 8:00am to 9:00pm, you can enjoy 24 different patterns across 28-minute cycles. The 12-meter-high fountain is even illuminated at night, creating a lovely romantic atmosphere.
Large-scale events, including “Octoberfest” and “Christmas Market,” are held often, and there are even concerts held regularly at the outdoor music venue within the park.
