The park started out as a castle area for the feudal lord, Matsudaira Bizennokami. By the end of the Edo Period the park had begun to evolve into what soon became the stomping grounds for the Japanese military.
In the 1800’s Hibiya Park was used as a marching and celebration grounds for the Japanese military. Training was done on the grounds as well as reward ceremonies for those that went above and beyond their calls of duty.
Finally in 1903, the park was revised as a public western-style park. Many events started to move to the area and the park quickly grew to one of the most popular in Tokyo.
There are several rail lines used to get to the Hibiya Park including the Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line, the Tokyo-metro Marunouchi Line, the Chiyoda Line, and the JR Yamanote Line. Once in the area you must travel about 2-8 minutes to get to the parks grounds. For those taking a car there are public parking places available.
