Shiba Park


Shiba Park was established as the first park in Japan during the Meiji period. At present, the park is managed by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and Minato-ku. Camphor, zelkova, and ginkgo are some of the stately trees that grace the park. You can have a picnic on the grass while looking at the amazing Tokyo Tower. You can also sit on a bench and listen to the cascading sounds of the waterfall in Maple Valley. Nearby are the Shiba Toshogu Shrine, the Zojoji Temple, the Tokyo Prince Hotel, the Maruyama Tumulus, and the Old Tokaido Pine Trees, so we suggest you take a walk while you are sightseeing. You cannot help but be moved by the thought that you are walking under the same pine trees as the people of the Edo period.
