Shiba Park is located in the Minato Ward of Tokyo, Japan. Today, the park is recognized as being one of the historic parks of Japan as it was created in the late 1800’s. The scenery of the park resembles what one would see when in the forests of Japan as it features many wonderful natural exhibits of water, aged trees, and native flowering plants.

The key location of Shiba Park has made it popular in many movie flicks needing a quiet romantic scene. To date, the park has been in many movies, some more popular than others.



Shiba Park was originally created in the mid 1800’s to surround the Zojoji Temple. Creating the garden of Shiba Park allowed those attending the temple to really feel at peace in a surreal atmosphere.

Following the war, the temple was disconnected from the park as its own stand-alone exhibit. Since, the park has grown even more popular as it is remembered to be the park surrounding the historic temple.
