Visit the country first public park at Shiba Park, established in 1873. Sections of the grounds date back to the Edo period, and a 14th-century temple lies nearby. Wander the pathways around the compact park, take in the temple (used famously in the film "Wolverine"), and visit the ravine with its 20 m (66 ft) zelkova tree. Enjoy scenic views of the Tokyo tower, and consider bringing along a picnic to savor on one of the manicured lawns.

Shiba Park reviews
Had a short walk around this park. View Tokyo tower nearby. Can view some flowers but nothing very grand. Area is cool and pleasant enough. more »
We walked through the park on the way to the Tokyo Tower. Maybe we missed something but it didn't seem to be much of an attraction on its own and more of just a little park surrounding the tower. more »
A small but nice park in the centre of the city. Look out for a van across the road selling sweet potatoes. Really good.
Lovely park around Tokyo tower. I think a must go place when visiting Tokyo. Also a wonderful place to spend a free afternoon when good weather.
