Hibiya Koen Park is a park near Ginza and the Imperial Palace in Tokyo, Japan. Before being turned into a park in the early 20th century, it served as a square for military parades. It is said that Hibiya Park was the first large Western-style park in Japan when it was created in 1903. Many of its trees, however, have a long history that predates these modern developments. Seasonal events and concerts attract many visitors to the park. On weekdays you can see many workers and company employees eating their lunch boxes in the park. The park's scenery changes with the seasons. Some great times to visit include July when morning glory flowers blossom and in November when you can see chrysanthemums.
