Inokashira Park was Japan's first suburban park, established in 1913 and systematically developed. The Inokashira Pond there was the source of the first water service for Tokyo (then called Edo), the Kanda water supply, providing a vital roll until an improved water supply was completed in 1898.
The third Tokugawa shogun, Iemitsu, is said to have given Inokashira Pond its name. The name is said to mean either "source of the water supply" or "well that supplies the most delicious water."
At one time, a cedar forest to cultivate the water source surrounded the pond, creating a beautiful landscape. Over time, the types of trees and the aspects of the forest changed. Today it is hard to call this area "suburban," but nonetheless it is a place of leisure for Tokyo residents.
The park is divided into four sections, Inokashira Pond and its surroundings, Gotenyama with its wooded area and Shizen Bunka-en Gardens, recreation facilities in the west end of the park, and the No.2 park to the southeast.

There was a satirical tanka verse popular at the end of the shogunate that goes, "just four jokisen that wake the peace of sleep keep you up at night." Jokisen was a brand of tea, but it could also mean the steam ships of American Commodore Perry who landed at Uraga in 1853. So the verse pokes fun at the mood of Edo (old Tokyo) at the time.
More than the general citizenry, it was the shogunate that was surprised by the arrival of Perry's back ships. It didn't have any large ships to protect Edo from foreign attack. So, the construction of daiba, or artillery batteries, was conceived. Of the 11 originally planned, only six were actually built off the shore of Shinagawa. But they were never used, and eventually abandoned. The park is what was once the Shinagawa Battery, designed by Tarozaemon Egawa, the magistrate of Izu-Nirayama.
Six batteries remained into the 20th century, but four were removed with improvements to Tokyo Bay. Only the No.3 and No.6 batteries retain their original shape, and are designated historical monuments by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.
