There appears to be some confusion as to what area Chidorifugashi actually refers to. Most people may associate it with the park that surrounds the Budokan stadium (actually, that's Kitanomaru Park) or perhaps the moat that surrounds it. Actually, it's the latter along with the path alongside the moat that leads to the boat rental section. The main claim to... More

In spring the old moat of the Tokyo Imperial Palace is lined in cherry blossom and is great for a trip in a row boat. In summer the moat changes completely and is covered in lotus leaves and eventually the beautiful blossom. Worth a visit for photos and memories.

This place is absolutely amazing. I know cherry blossoms are in many places but with the lake and the boats it sets the romantic tone. Pics turn out beautiful and there are no pushy vendors while you enjoy the scenery.

Such a beautiful park - I was there at the ending of Cherry Blossom season and it was great to see people having picnics under the trees. It's a little confusing to walk around as it's a huge complex of museums and parks so go with time to explore it.

We visited just before the sunset and were there when the lights weny on. It was the peak of sakura season and it was very crowded. But in spite of crowds, it was one of the best spots we visited to see cherry blossom. In the evening once lights go up it is unbelievably beautiful. Must go during the evening... More

The pictures do not lie! The sakura hanging over the moat are spectacular. However, it gets INCREDIBLY crowded which is exacerbated by people stopping and taking pictures. We visited both during the day and at night. At night there is a beautiful view of Tokyo tower framed by the lit-up sakura around the moat - very picturesque, which explains the... More

Nice sakura viewing during night time! .It s my first time seeing light up sakura . A short walk from kudanshita station ,follow the crowd ,you won't get lost . The view of sakura and tokyo tower ,you have to line up to take photo. For me ,there are more nicer view under sakura trees along the pedestrian walk .

Staying in Yotsuya / Iidabashi

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.
