Hibiya Park is a public park in Tokyo’s Chiyoda ward. During the Meiji period, the park was used as a military muster area and parade ground. It has become a resting place for workers who gather at lunchtime to have a few minutes break from office-related stresses. On weekends, Hibiya Park is popular among courting couples. It is close to the Imperial Palace and a short walk from Ginza. Park facilities include a library, public tennis courts, restaurants, a flower shop, and an open-air arena where concerts are often held.
