The Grand Opening of Shibuya MIYASHITA PARK

Monday, Mar 16, 2020 0

 

Opening right next to the iconic Shibuya Scramble is the new and improved Shibuya Miyashita Park. The park itself will be combined with a commercial shopping facility and hotel, all of which are collectively referred to as “MIYASHITA PARK.” The park on the rooftop of the building will serve as a soothing green space in the bustling commercial district of Shibuya.

Originally established as Miyashita Park in 1930, the facility was redesigned in time for the Tokyo 1964 Olympic Games to look as if it “floated” above Shibuyagawa River. In 2011, Miyashita Park was transformed into a sports park that Tokyoites used extensively for skateboarding and bouldering. Now, Miyashita Park has been reimagined as a pioneering “multi-dimensional” city park with a creative design and diverse functions.

State-of-the-art facilities

 

MIYASHITA PARK consists of a three-story multipurpose complex and a hotel building, with an open-air park on the rooftop of the facility. There is easy access to Shibuya Station from the south side, and Harajuku Station from the north. The building is divided into two blocks, north and south, with a wide range of shopping facilities on each floor. The north block will also feature a hotel which will serve as a convenient base for your stay in Tokyo.

The actual park, Shibuya Miyashita Park, is an open-air rooftop park with a modern yet lushly-green feel. The park is divided into two zones. One zone includes a skateboard park, a bouldering wall and a multi-purpose sports area with a sandy court. The other zone has a cafe and open lawn spaces, perfect for those looking for relaxation.

 

 

Harmony amid the bustle of the city

 

Shibuya Miyashita Park will be a perfect place for a stroll, people-watching, or just sitting back and relaxing while sipping a coffee at the cafe. From the observation terrace, you could take in the sunset behind Tokyo’s impressive skyline, with passing train windows reflecting the fading light.

After relaxing at the park, why not visit Harajuku to see its exciting streets, trendy food, and colorful fashion? Or head to the nostalgic alleyways of Nombei Yokocho for some drinks at retro Japanese bars. Whatever the plan, Miyashita Park will offer you fresh energy for the next stage of your Tokyo adventure.
