Park

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.

Highlights

  • Japan’s first Western-style park.
  • Park has thousands of trees growing, including ginkgo trees around 500 years old.
  • Large-scale events frequently held.
  • Lots of playground equipment.
  • Long-standing restaurant “Hibiya Matsumotoro” has been open since the park first opened.

    去银座看电影或是购物时一定要去坐一坐。气氛娴静,环境漂亮的公园真的很像是一座把都市的喧嚣挡在门外的世外桃源。
