4.5
#38 of 3,859 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.

  • Because summer is cherry chidorigafuchi apt famous for cherry blossoms, but look at the boldness of the stone wall. But no one on the boat during the rainy season because I didn't.

  • I was stunned to see the beautiful cherry blossom scenery. I was lucky to visit the popular spot when the cherry was in full bloom. Chidorigafuchi can be assessed by several subway lines. During peak ...  more »

  • It gets amazing during Sakura season. However I don't recommend is the train to get there because the station is insanely crowded. Lines to get it and get out. Take a taxi from Tokyo station. Really nothing to do after spring is over.
  • Lovely place to see the cherry blossoms ! Not super crowded, calm, and really beautiful. The presence of the water pound and the proximity of the imperial gardens and palace make this place very peaceful. You can also take a small boat and navigate a bit on the water while watching the Sakuras. My recommendation for cherry blossom seeing !
  • Beautiful in the spring for hanami. There's a moat and rental of boats (row & paddle) for 30 min- 2 hours. When it's cherry blossoms season, the line can take 40 min to an hour long and the vending machine will be out of drinks. So prepare.
  • nice place to see in the sakura season. You can rent row boat there on the day and there is illumination at night. at night, the place feel surreal. too many people sometimes tho. a must visit place in the spring!
  • Extremely beautiful place to visit especially during cherry blossom 🌸 season. This is part of the Imperial gardens. Wonderful place for a good 30-60 minutes’ slow walk or rent a boat to enhance the Hanami (Sakura viewing) experience. The light-up (till 10PM) is another must-see magnificent scenery. Highly recommended!!
