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.
