Rather small but nice park close to the Yasukuni Shrine just north of the Imperial Palace grounds. When I was there during the Sakura season it was of course very special given the huge amount of cherry trees in the park. Also in the park...More

This is a great park but if you only have a day or so it’s not the best option. But it’s still wonderful and these areas make Tokyo so great

Nice park, relatively close to the Imperial Palace. There is a large sports hall in the park as well as several museums. At one end of the park there is a door to The East Gardens of the Imperial Palace. When we visited it there...More

The park is well used and loved. I always visit the East Gardens by starting at Kitanomaru from the Budokan side (Kudanshita). The park has a lovely cafe to stop in and refresh. Thru the park and to the East Gardens is all down hill...More

Probably one of the most beautiful places to enjoy the show of the cherry blossom, because it is in the main postcard of the country: the Imperial Palace of Tokyo. And the park even offers a boat ride on the canals next to the cherry...More

Entrance is free. Many beautiful spots. Near Nippon Budo-kan, a gorgeous landmark where traditional martial arts contests are held as well as concerts. Eric Clapton played here.

The park itself is not as well tended as the neighboring East Gardens, but it is peaceful. The grass area has taken a beating over the years. There is an inexpensive cafe on the grounds that is warm and clean with friendly staff. The menu...More

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.
