Chidori-ga-fuchi, Chiyoda

(4.6/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
One of the city's most iconic areas known for its flowering cherry trees, Chidori-ga-fuchi plays home to a park, a lengthy pedestrian path, and a historic moat. Originally part of the defenses of the now-ruined Edo Castle, the moat and earthworks suffered heavy damage during World War II. You can visit the park surrounding the moat and wander its 700 m (2,297 ft) pedestrian walkway to take in the views of the seasonally blossoming cherry trees, a symbol of the region. Alternatively, rent a paddleboat or canoe and explore from the water, winding your way between the moat walls surrounded by low-hanging trees.

  • The circuit around the moat can take a couple of hours, more if you stop for photos. On the side opposite the boathouse there's a less visited area under large (as in HUGE) trees. From there you can g...  more »
