Hibiya Park is located in the Chiyoda City area of Tokyo, near the Imperial Palace and its gardens, the Shinbashi district, and the Kasumigaseki district. This 40-acre park is about as close to the center of Tokyo as it’s possible to be, but the wide open spaces and beautiful landscaping give travelers the chance to escape from the city should they want some peace and quiet. The park is perhaps best known for being home to the Shisei Kaikan, a Gothic brick building devoted to the city’s news services. Constructed in 1929, it was once home to the Domei Tsushin state wire service, as well as the Jiji Press and Kyodo News after World War II. Hibiya Park Tokyo also has tennis courts, though reservations are a must if you wish to play there, and two outdoor concert venues. The park also has wonderful rose gardens and is bicycle-friendly, making it a great place to spend time outdoors if you’re visiting Tokyo in the warm weather.Hibiya Park lies on a plot of land just south of the Tokyo Imperial Palace which was the former site of a few Edo Period feudal lords' residences. Later in 1903, the grounds, which include a portion of the old castle wall, were converted into Japan's first western style garden.
