Walking around the motes & the grounds of the Imperial Palace are quite nice. The sidewalks are wide & if you're curious of the distance around the Imperial Palace. It's approximately 5km or just over 3 miles. There are quite a lot of joggers that you'll see. Just be careful while walking around. Various gardens & rest stop around the... More

去年夏天剛購入一台單眼相機剛好碰到那裡的夏祭於是趁機試鏡。真希望明年還會有機會再去⋯只能說日本的夏天太浪漫像一場戀愛。in Japan the summer is always romantic just like a love.

One of the best places for Sakura viewing in Tokyo. The lake, Sakura, gentle breeze or the moonlight....you'll discover this place as out of the world.

We really only went here for a boat ride under the blossoms but the day we arrived looking to rent one but were told it was too windy. This may have been a translation issue because I didn't see any wind (but there were no boats out either). We'd been traveling north through the country as the blossom wave swept... More

A beautiful park especially during summer with the standard background noise of cicadas. Worth going on one of the boats if you have time especially if with your significant other.

April is the season of cherry blossoms in Tokyo, and there are a number of spots for viewing the sakura (cherry blossoms) in their full bloom. Kudanshita (Chidori-ga-fuchi) is one of the best spots to go for a hanami (sakura viewing) walk around the moat. When we went for sakura hanami (as it’s known in Japanese), there was a festival...

Most of the photos depict this place during Hanami (Japanese cherry blossom viewing season) which usually is around end or March/beginning of April - actual dates vary every year. While words cannot do the place justice during this time, it's also important to note that it's super busy: the rowing boats have people waiting in lines for hours and the... More

Best in early spring for Sakura watching, good both in day time and evening time. Sakura reflection to the water gives an impressive scenery, one of the must visit places in Tokyo.

The place is easy to goby Tokyo metro. Visited the place at night for the night cherry blossom. The light would be turned on since 18:00 at cherry blossom festival. Definitely a must see in Tokyo!!

We went when sakura season was little bit waning.But the beauty of the place and crowds were abundant. We had to follow a queue of well and formally dressed youngsters attending some formal function there but could not find the details of the function because of language barrier.Anyway a stroll with a macha flavoured ice cream in hand is fantastic...

Staying in Yotsuya / Iidabashi

Neighborhood Profile
Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this day, and there are long-standing restaurants with geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
