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...

Nice Gardens.. This place is right opposite the Yasukuni Shrine. The place would be really beautiful during Cherry Blossom season, which I missed by a couple of days. I was here in late april and could spot only last few cherry blossom trees.

I love rowing a boat at Chidorigafuchi. I and my four friends went to there in April. It was last couple of days of cherry blossom season. We waited around one and half hour to rent the boats but it was worth it. About half hour, we row under the trees and leaves were falling. It was one of the... More

It's the best spot to see cherry blossoms in to Tokyo, maybe even Japan! Tree are on the both sides of the river which was full of small colorful boats, beautiful! It's also lit at night, not to be missed. Take a taxi there and back. We walked the first time for night viewing took us at least two hours... More

A nice quiet place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo. The park is a bit off the beaten path, but a good place to seek some sanctuary.

Just a simply wonderful place to walk, breathe, view and relax. Joggers and cyclists share the same route around the Imperial Palace and so beware of who's coming up behind you if you change direction!

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.
