A municipal park in the city of Tokyo
Directly across the street from Tokyo’s Imperial Palace. Easy to combined, after Imperial Palace and Kokyo Gaien, continue to this Tokyo's surprising amount of green space. Walking through the park, time seems to move at a much more leisurely pace here.
Throughout Hibiya Park, visitors find quiet corners of solitude to spend a moment alone with thoughts and to reflect as another day comes to an end. The park is flat, and not necessarily beautiful, but it’s fun to stroll through
Hibiya was Japan’s first western style park, and today offers tennis courts, picnic areas, flower gardens and an open-air music venue.
The Park is in an amazing location, the park has two ponds stocked with koi fish, turtles and ducks, and as it is surrounded by high rise buildings. Does have quite the urban oasis quality about it. There was a nice little children's playground near the center of the park, only open until 4:30pm though.
