Kitanomaru Park, Chiyoda

(150+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Nature / Park
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.

  • Very nice small park just on out-skirts of the imperial palace. great place for the kids to run wild. decent public toilets. easy access to budokan and yasukuni shrine.
  • Awesome views here in sakura season ! Don't forget to bring your family, friends, lover here ! This little park is awesome
  • Peaceful and safe, large park. Nothing sensational but nice relaxing spot and walking spot for locals. Good for picnics. There is a pond but no barrier. Budokan looks nice and is used for concerts and large events. The entrance 'mon' are spectacular. Crowded during sakura season as it's close to chigorigabuchi. There are toilet facilities in the park and If it rains there are sitting areas with covers/roofs. Nice museums within walking distance too.
  • Small park with some bench, pets welcomed here
  • Part of the Chiyoda park in the middle of Tokyo. Huge area that encompasses the Imperial Palace. As with all things in Japan, everything is very well maintained and orderly. One of the must visit tourist spots.
