Review: Shiba Park Hotel


Book A Stay

Shiba Park Hotel is a unique library hotel that connects people, towns, and history. The hotel lies in the Shiba area of Tokyo, where the atmosphere of Edo still exists.

The Shiba area is located in the eastern and southern parts of Minato ward and to the west of Hamamatsucho. this area is walkable and is home to Zojo-ji Temple and the large Shiba Koen park which surrounds Zojo-ji. Tokyo Tower is just to the west of the park and can be accessed on foot by walking through the park. Shiba Park is also useful for restaurants, bars, and convenience stores. If you visit in the plum blossoms season, this is a great park to enjoy the colorful display.


The location of the hotel itself is great and a short walk from Shiba Koen park and Zojo-ji Temple. It is close to Hamamatusucho train station which includes the JR East Line and Tokyo Monorail, plus the adjacent Daimon subway station. It’s easy to get from the hotel to Haneda airport on the Monorail.
