Chidorigafuchi, Chiyoda

4.6
#33 of 2,151 in Things to do in Tokyo
One of the city's most iconic areas known for its flowering cherry trees, Chidorigafuchi 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. Put Chidorigafuchi and other Tokyo attractions into our Tokyo road trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

    Went on Sunday at blooming cherry trees, so some people had less and quiet. Sitting on the bench and occasionally riot Trooper of the bike ride, passing by. No forced City police to protect the inelegant, and landscape around, restless heart. Less plain is visited by bicycle, fitness.

    Cherry Blossom time in crowded everyyear. The moat and the old cherry trees would have been 100 years is fine. It's cherry blossom time in the nearest India Embassy event, and look there!

    Very fantastic atmosphere a lit cherry blossom viewing season. I think Ali is going on a couple because there is boat hire. Near Yasukuni Shrine because it can go together. Because only Jimbo nightlights dining often walk a little.

    Beautiful cherry blossoms lining the street. There is a light up at night but no "matsuri" with food and games here. However you can rent a boat and row it around the moat to enjoy the cherry blossoms. It is also too crowded to have picnic under the trees here along the moat, so if you want to experience what the locals do, suggest going into garden area where the Nippon Budokan is!

    its a cool place...much better than 3 stars that i'm giving. i was just there with someone who was a pill that day. not this place's fault i suppose but it kinda affected the day.

    This is, by far, the best place in Tokyo for Sakura (cherry blossom) viewing. It is spectacular if you visit during sakura season. Try to avoid weekends, but even if you are not able to, go...it is worth it. And if you do not rent a boat you will regret it.

    Beautiful place for a walk. Lined with sakura trees during sakura season. Beautiful scenery

    one of the best spots to see sakura in Tokyo. avoid weekend if you can as it can be extremely crowded during sakura season.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
