Cosmopolitan Yet Naturally Beautiful: Hiroo Area
Redolent with a refined, high-society atmosphere, the always captivating Hiroo area is well known as one of Tokyo’s most desirable luxury residential districts. Hiroo is characterized by low-rise, high-bracket condominiums, so it suffers none of the oppressive closeness of some metropolitan areas. The very spaciousness of Hiroo accentuates its mood of elegance.
Stretching across five city blocks, Hiroo Garden Hills is situated on a plot of land so leafy you have to remind yourself that you’re in the center of one of the world’s biggest cities. Though built some 40 years ago and so certainly not new, Hiroo Garden Hills remains highly popular, retaining the charm of a “vintage” condo development.
One of the charms of Hiroo is its cosmopolitan ambience. At one time, Hiroo was a collection of stately villas owned by samurai families. These samurai villas later became embassies, and today Hiroo is dotted with the embassies of numerous countries. As a result, many foreign nationals live here. Numerous shops in the area cater to these foreign residents, including National Azabu, a supermarket that sells foodstuffs from all over the world. This international presence creates a cosmopolitan essence that is uniquely Hiroo.
A much-loved place to relax in Hiroo area is Arisugawanomiya Memorial Park. This spacious and leafy park is an ideal site for an invigorating stroll, incorporating features such as ponds, valley streams, gentle hills and undulating meadows. On weekends, many families can be seen enjoying a pleasant outing.
