日比谷公園(Hibiya Park)

日比谷公園(Hibiya Park)位於東京市中心,是日本修建的第一座西洋式的公園。園內樹木成蔭,花香草綠,公園中央廣場建有一座大型噴泉,噴泉附近有一座露天音樂廳,經常舉辦一些演出活動。公園內還設有東京都立日比谷圖書館。日比谷公園是個怡心養性的都市中的花園綠地。由此眺望日比谷的群樓,更顯都市氣息。出日比谷公園正門,便是著名的帝國飯店,寶塚歌劇院和日比谷香蒂時裝城。

Hibiya Park (日比谷公園, Hibiya Kōen?) is a park in Chiyoda City, Tokyo, Japan. It covers an area of 161,636.66m2 between the east gardens of the Imperial Palace to the north, the Shinbashi district to the southeast and the Kasumigaseki government district to the west.

The land was occupied by the estates of the Mōri clan and Nabeshima clan during the Edo period, and was used for army maneuvers during the Meiji period. It was converted to a public park in 1903.

The park is famous for the Shisei Kaikan (市政会館?), a brick building built in Gothic style in 1929, which once housed the Domei Tsushin state wire service and its postwar successors Kyodo News and Jiji Press.

The park is also known for its open-air concert venue, and for its tennis courts (for which reservations are hotly contested due to their proximity to the financial and government districts).
