Neighborhood: 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.

Great Park... A lot of green to see and feel the good smell of nature. The silence and peaceful atmosphere rules the place. You may enjoy the lake as well as the huge grass ground floors for any activity. The Budokan may provide you some event entertainement as well. Great place to visit in the middle of the city.

Huge park surrounded by canal where you can rent canoes.
Take subway and get off kudanshita station, park is just outside the plateform, actually in the same area you can see also Yasakuni shrine, connected by an over pass.
One of the best background to take some pictures.

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 morning, even if I got cold and lost.

We walked through this park after seeing the Imperial Palace grounds and this was more impressive, due to the combination of cherry trees, water and families enjoying the season.

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 are the Science museum as well as the Nippon Budokan (sports and event hall). Around the park a lot of rowing boat activities take place on the water surrounding the park.

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 were not many people.

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 trees!

Together with the chrysanthemum, the cherry tree is considered the national flower of Japan.

Its flowering begins in the south of the country and comes to the north gradually.
Arriving in Tokyo early in the spring: end of March and beginning of April.

Enjoy also the Hanami, which is a picnic done under the cherry tree or ume (flowering plum)! The locals hold real banquets and celebrate the party drinking sakê with family and friends!

Tokyo Imperial Palace and its gardens are located just a 10-minute walk from Tokyo Station on a well-signposted path.

Budokan and Science and Technology Museum are in this park.
At the season of Cherry Blossoms, this place becomes special.
It has some historical significance as a part of Edo Castle.

If you visit this place otherwise, I'm afraid you find just a big green area.
Not bad, but not special either, I think.
