Chidorigafuchi, Chiyoda

4.6
#21 of 859 in Sightseeing in Tokyo
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • Cherry blossoms in the spring, when you go in the summer, Phil called the spots good. It's great to take pictures of the actual River stretches along trees as zig yaseukunisinsa's easy to find

  • There had a lovely view of cherry blossom during in season. It was very crowded because of cherry blossom. You can not imagine how beautiful it is. It's worth to go there.  more »
  • As a famous tourist spot has reigned as the location of the cherry blossom season is one of the country and then after 5 on a weekday is where 外senai now as an important spot for runners. Here to stay is the icing on the cake, as may be good place not worried about falling from the air. To say what the Emperor's family is from peace of mind, peace of mind, and it is also peace of mind ^ ^

  • 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.
