About the 150th anniversary of the establishment of the city park system On January 15, 1873, Daijokan Proclamation No. 16 started the city park system in Japan, and Ueno Park and Shiba Park were opened as the first metropolitan parks.
The year 2023 will be the year commemorating the 150th anniversary of the opening of the metropolitan parks by this Grand Council of State Proclamation.
While looking back on the history of metropolitan parks and the roles they have played so far, we are cooperating with the national government and related organizations to organize the “150th
Anniversary Commemorative Project of the Establishment of the Tokyo City Parks System” in order to communicate the appeal of parks and provide an opportunity for further development. We will continue to work together.
