Hibiya Park. This park is one of parks in the heart of Tokyo like Central Park in Manhattan.
I went through this park more than 20 times. Why did I come here again? Before the reason, who is your national hero? Maybe, some Japanese name « Hideo Nomo« , « Hideki Matsui« , « Ichiro Suzuki » – MLB player, « Hidetoshi Nakata« , « Keisuke Honda » – Soccer Player. Maybe, some Japanese name « Ryoma Sakamoto » who overthrew Tokugawa Shogunate and helped Tenno(Japan Emperor) get back his dignity around 150 years ago. But, anyone doesn’t come to my mind.
When I asked my some Filipino teachers « Who is your national hero? », some told me « Jose Rizal« . He fought for the Philippines Independence. One of teachers told me « His statue in Hibiya Park. » I’d like to see him. That’s why I came here.
