Chidorigafuchi, Chiyoda

(850+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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.

  • The moat is located next to Yasukuni Shrine and Edo Castle, this place is definitely one of the best place for sakura viewing whether viewing from afar or while boating! Picturesque hanami at any spot...  more »
  • Really best view for me in Japan! close to big park so when you want to go to that place pls take some cover and beer :)  more »
  • Best view when going there in the Sakura season. However, it will be very crowded at that time of the year so be prepared.  more »

  • 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.
