Park in the very middle of Tokyo

Hibiya park is located in the middle of Tokyo, neighboring to the Imperial Palace Plaza and surrounded by government and large company offices. On weekdays, it is a place of rest and relaxation for office workers. On weekends, many events are held in the park for holidaymakers. It was opened in 1903 as the first-time western style garden in Japan. In the park, there are various facilities such as a public hall, a libraly, an open-air concert stage and a western style restaurant. In my tour, A one day tour for the first time visitors to Tokyo, this park is along the route. Besides the park, the Hibiya area has long been well known for entertainment facilities such as movie theaters, a revue theater and so on. A revue theater is named Tokyo Takarazuka Theater in which all performers are females. In my tour, you can find many aspects of Japan steeped in tradition and culture. Why don't you join me?

As I am a 60 year old man, born in Tokyo, graduated from a university in Tokyo and worked for a leading paper wholesale company at its headquarters for 35 years, I am an Edokko or a native Tokyoite. I am familiar with various interesting places in Tokyo and the Kanto area such as historic spots, scenic beauty, entertainment, restaurants and so on. Although I basically provide several regular walking tours for visitors from abroad, I am willing to arrange your tour plan in a customized way according to your interest. If I receive your inquiry, I am ready to hear your interest and what you want to experience, and discuss your plan with you in advance.
