The history of “Aoyama Park”

The south area of “Aoyama Park” started in 1958 when the Tokyo Metropolitan Government began to develop the ruins of the former backgate and shooting range of shooting ranges at the west side of the barracks.

Since 1984, some of the south districts of the south district were the heliport of the Akasaka Press Center (U.S. military bases in Japan), but the site between the National Museum of New Art and the Loop No. 3 is scheduled to be returned to the public, and it is scheduled to be added as part of the Aoyama Park.

On the other hand, the northern area is a park where the ruins of repatriate residences are built, so it has a complex shape surrounding the residential land.

The area of the Aoyama Park is 38,465.49 square meters.
The vast grounds are divided into various zones, such as Event Area, sports ground, multi discipline gland and walking courses.

The southern area of the south district is the site of the shooting range of the former Army camp.On the west side along the road, the heliport of the U.S. military base in Japan is adjacent to the heliport, so it is called the Heliport Park, and the whole square looks different from the atmosphere of the northern area.
