Kitanomaru Park, Chiyoda

4.3
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.

    Visit the India Embassy Sunday morning Yoga events. The Park was crowded with people from early in the morning to walk the dog. Green, it is a very beautiful park.

    Chidorigafuchi cherry just tsbomi then later yet, as walking the walk and went into the kitanomaru Park. Occasional cherry trees was the blossoming of early-maturing varieties. Those who picnic in the square of lawn, were fine. Was quiet and very good, and is surrounded by trees and clumps of purple-tinged flowers. Then, I walked toward the Hall of martial arts.

    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.
