really nothing to see here in February maybe if you go in the summer it will look good, but in February it is really not worth a visit at all. it's just a big pond with some greenery around. and you have to pay to enter

It is cherry blossom season many people are out on hanami pilgrimage. This park has some attractions, is spotless, manicured to the best and sprawling. You can be on your own and not be disturbed at all. Enjoy the bloom, birds and water all around.

If you can be in Tokyo from the last week of March to the first week of April, there are no reason why not to visit KITANOMARU park is close to imperial palace. You can feel Japanese spring with watching fully blooming cherry blossom by walk through the park. もし、3月の最終週から4月の最初週に東京にいられるのであれば、皇居近くの北の丸公園に行ってみましょう。公園を散歩することで満開の桜を見ながら日本の春を感じられるでしょう。

This park is at walking distance from the Tokyo War Museum and shrine. Spotlessly clean, green and with beautiful trees is the right place to kill your time or spend a day relaxing. It has toilets, restaurants, arena, sitting benches and parking. That day there was a military parade and display which was sheer pleasure to watch and attend. Small... More

I wandered around this park for two hours, nobody else around but a couple of cyclists on their way somewhere. It was a Monday morning, so the Imperial Palace gardens were closed. When it started raining heavily I bought my favourite drink from a vending machine at the lake and sat down to enjoy the place. It was a lovely... More

Absolute beautiful. Small entry fee was worth it. The trees were turning as we were there and they were magnificent. Be sure to see the bonsai area too, just amazing. Lunch was cheap and there are plenty of noodle outlets. Well worth the train trip from the city.

What a pleasant surprised! While visiting the Imperial Gardens and decide to walk a few blocks following a sign to the Kitanomaru Park. I am certainly glad that I did without knowing what the park was about. Quite an extensive park right in the middle of the city. Nice place for photography and people watching. The park makes a very... More

This place is in the center of Tokyo, and it's very worth while to walk around the area. The atmosphere is great and it's always quiet, and you can take some beautiful pictures inside and outside of this park. Lots of trees and water; worth visiting when you are a bit tired from the busiest district of Tokyo. Easy to... 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.
