One of the city's most iconic areas known for its flowering cherry trees, Chidorigafuchi plays home to a park, a lengthy pedestrian path, and a historic moat. Originally part of the defenses of the now-ruined Edo Castle, the moat and earthworks suffered heavy damage during World War II. You can visit the park surrounding the moat and wander its 700 m (2,297 ft) pedestrian walkway to take in the views of the seasonally blossoming cherry trees, a symbol of the region. Alternatively, rent a paddleboat or canoe and explore from the water, winding your way between the moat walls surrounded by low-hanging trees. Put Chidorigafuchi and other Tokyo attractions into our Tokyo road trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
ここの桜は素晴らしい、圧倒されます。半蔵門辺りからブラブラと歩くのが好きです。個人的にはボート邪魔だなぁと思ってしまいます。多分、乗ればまた感想が変わるんでしょうけどねぇ。 more »The cherry blossoms here are wonderful and overwhelming. I like to walk from the hanzomon area. Personally, I think it's a boat ing. Maybe, i'll change my impressions again if I get on.
桜開花時期はボート乗り場は長蛇の列ですが、朝一にいくとさほど並ばずにボートに乗ることができました。 ボートからの眺めもさることながら、水面に広がるピンクの花びらも楽しめました。 more »The boat landing is a long line at the cherry blossom sprouts, but when we went first thing in the morning, we were able to get on the boat without lining up so much. In addition to the view from the boat, we could enjoy the pink petals spreading on the surface of the water.
In my opinion, this is the best sakura sightseeing spot in Tokyo. Ridiculously crowded in early spring, especially in the end of March. Sakura trees along the northern boat moat is the most beautiful part of this place, especially at dawn, sunset and night (illumination). The closest station to get this park is Hanzomon station of Hanzomon line (Tokyo Metro Subway) by the exit 3a or 3b. One of the renowned places to visit for cherry blossom viewing. Located in the heart of Tokyo it attracts tourists and natives alike. The park is well maintained with proper paths to walk. You can go boating in the lake as well. It offers picturesque views of the numerous cherry blossom trees around the lake. Good place for photography as your frame won't get hampered by people. There are staff on site to assist you with maps and directions. The park also has public restrooms. Good place to visit on a spring cherry blossom weekend at the end of March.
Very peaceful and nice to walk. It's near the imperial palace.
