This is a lovely park, which provides both a green lung and some tranquility in the bustling streets of Chiyoda. While it's not at all unique in comparison to the other parks of Tokyo, it's worth a 30-minute visit, if you're in the area.

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.
