Kokyo Gaien National Garden, Chiyoda

(4/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Formerly a part of the imperial palace, Kokyo Gaien National Garden spans 115 ha (285 ac), featuring a total of 12 moats and some 2,000 black pine trees, creating a striking scene with defunct old watch towers. A good place to relax in central Tokyo after a day of sightseeing and shopping, this area forms part of the city’s largest waterfront and greenery space. A central fountain, well-lit, and a carp pond offer great spots to enjoy this huge, well-maintained landscape. You can rent a bike in order to see all the park's corners, or just walk around and easily spend a couple of hours. The garden sits just a five-minute walk from Hibiya metro station.

  • Are surrounded by high-rise buildings around, but only here fall into the uncanny sense of Japan garden style. Many foreign tourists, there were many runners.

  • 工作关系来到东京,在皇居外苑散步,春暖花开。正好遇到马拉松比赛,也许是企业级别的。跑者之间互道着加油,十分元气。这就是春的气息吧。 
  • The yellow Ginkgo tree lined up was beautiful. Moats and bridges, remembering the Edo Castle was the original and hasemashita thoughts on the course of history.
