Kitanomaru Park, Chiyoda
(4.2/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Encircled by a picturesque moat and home to many renowned sites, the historic Kitanomaru Park makes a great location for a quiet stroll or a peaceful picnic in the sunshine. With relics of the famous Edo Castle dotted around the park--including the moat and castle gates--contrasted against the science and modern art museum now standing at the park, you can get a sense of the past melded with the future. Consider hiring a boat for a lazy row on the water, drifting beneath towering sukura trees. If you choose to visit around mid-May, be prepared to compete for space with other tourists here to admire the blossoming trees. Birdwatchers might want to bring along their binoculars, as the park houses many interesting avian species. Put Kitanomaru Park at the forefront of your travel plans using our Tokyo trip itinerary planner.

  • One of my favorite in Tokyo. Walking here is a little hard, because too many people not. Winter was especially lonely, bathing in the Indian summer sun, tangled is filled with yellow Ginkgo leaves. Neighborhood MOM friends took their baby, and basking in the Sun, under the Ginkgo tree, while happily chatting to has. I wonder what a happy scene. Away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, without thinking about anything, go back to nothing. So far in Tokyo it may be not so much. The baby began to cry. And also to go back to the hustle and bustle.
