Wonderful for walks day and night. Both quiet and active areas. Especially beautiful in the spring, not just the cherry blossoms, but the new greenery as the trees bud with leaves. Some wildlife also can be seen (birds and fish). Peaceful cenotaph dedicated to Japan's war dead also of interest.

The cherry trees were no longer blossom by mid May. However, the park was absolutely beautiful. It has just a small walking area where a lot of taxi drivers rest during the afternoon. You will see them with their taxi signs on off. Has clean restrooms.

I checked up well in advance when the Chiyoda Cherry Blossom Festival was held in the past. It was held for one week from the last weekend of March, or it always included this particular week, depending on the time when cherry blossoms were in full bloom. So I booked a hotel and bought an air ticket 6 months before.... More

We visited Tokyo at the beginning of April and the Sakura (cherry blossom) was at its end. we had, however, enjoyed the walk and could spot some trees still pinkish. It should have been breathtaking during the full blossoming period. It is a must visit during the cherry blossom. Without the Sakura, it could worth a visit only if you... More

When the blossoms are out, its beautiful and romantic. There are lots of people and cameras and the queue for the boats is very long. Despite this its like a dream, clouds of sakura everywhere. Its amazing. When the sun is out its so enjoyable but will still need a jacket because along the walk many parts are shaded.

(a bit late for 2015, but perhaps useful for future readers) Tips for cherry blossom viewing : Tip 1 - enter the park via Kudanshita station. The best views are along the moat. Walk southwards, and then cut into the park for a different feel (i.e view the trees from higher ground). Tip 2 - go early (before 10am). It... More

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

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

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.
