Subject

Hibiya Park design as it was shortly after completion of the park grounds in 1903.

Description

The park is designed in a primarily western style, but with some Japanese influences. Many of the western influences have been highlighted by Waley, but there is also a Japanese style area in the middle of the park and the old Hibiya wall for the Shogun's palace in the eastern corner.
