This metropolitan park was originally built on the site of “Daiba No. 3”, one of the eight daiba (cannon batteries built by land reclamation, etc.) that the Edo Shogunate had constructed in preparation for Perry’s second visit to Japan.

Surrounded by stone walls, the park is full of greenery, and the remains of former gun emplacements and gunpowder depots can still be seen.

Here you can experience a piece of the end of the Edo period while viewing the modern Rainbow Bridge and the Tokyo waterfront.
