Chidori Gafuchi is a very beautiful and romantic place to see Cheery Blossom in Tokyo from late March to early April. You should also go see the view in the evening, they normally turn on the light from 6pm to 10 pm. It is one of the most beautiful view that I have seen in the evening. There are lots... More

You are the place that should be visited if I want to feel the four seasons in Japan. You may feel the urban four seasons when it turns around on foot from the Imperial Palace. Spring will be good if I visit here.

Expecting to spend a lovely day boating on the cherry blossomed moat, our trip was pure hell. Our boat man, obviously anti american/tourist, went after getting us into the boat, pushed down on the side of the boat, and not pushing out on the boat. Causing the three of us to tilt toward his push and tumble into the filthy... More

such a nice spot during Sakura season, heaps of Cherry Blossoms lined the water! you can hire boats, but beware the line can get long - we lined up for 1 hour and eventually the boats were closed as it was too windy for them - so if its a windy day don't be surprised if the boats are not... More

This is a lovely area to take a walk in when the cherry blossoms are blooming. Make sure you take a camera.

The blossoms are beautiful but the gyoen park offers more variety and more different views. The best views are actually at both entrances of the park where you can see the combination of blossoms and the boats. The walk through the park does not add much to that

Now I know why Chidorigafuchi is very popular in Tokyo during spring. It has a cinematic feel that could transport one to another dimension in a very limited time. The cherry blossoms are gorgeous and if you are patient enough you can rent a boat to cruise along the river. Be aware of the crowd though. Lots of people want... More

Afrer a long walk through the city, this view is just breathtaking. The cherry blossoms were in full bloom and it looked like a postcard. It was less crowded than I expected.

Chidorigafuchi is one of the many wonderful strolls around the royal palace. It's obviously most popular during the cherry blossom season - and packed on those days, but that adds to the experience. This is a nice stroll which meanders along a moat with beautiful greenery and row boats strolling themselves up and down the water. The walk along the... More

When I take a walk on the day which cleared up here, it's a very pleasant place. When spring comes, a flower of a cherry tree blooms and is beautifulness.

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.
