The Japanese Red Cross Medical Center is a hospital located in Hiroo, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo. It is the central medical center of the Japanese Red Cross Society, and is directly controlled by it. The site of Hiroo, Tokyo, where the medical center is currently located, was where a mansion of Horita Binakamori once stood. [wiki]

The Japanese Red Cross Hospital, the predecessor, was built on the current location in 1891. In front of the bus stop there is a circa 500-year-old tree, which is the largest ginkgo in the area with a circumference of 4.7 meters or more, and was designated a natural monument in Shibuya-ku.
