We went to Chidorifaguchi to view cherry blossoms in the rain and it was still beautiful. We ended up not getting a boat because it was raining but the line was still long even if it was much shorter than usual. Walking along the water is very pleasant. The one caveat is that this is not a great place for... More

The circuit around the moat can take a couple of hours, more if you stop for photos. On the side opposite the boathouse there's a less visited area under large (as in HUGE) trees. From there you can get good views into the moat and of the trees on the side with main path. Get there early in the morning... More

At cherry with full bloom, it is gorgeous and marvelous. However, you have to know that too many people visit at the moment.

Nice walk by the water, but a little cold in the wintertime. There are boats to rent and pathway around the lake.

During the "sakura" (cherry blossom) the park was absolutely packed. The trees are beautiful, they set up tents serving even Indian foods and show I guess due to the proximity to the Indian Embassy.

The cherry blossom there was very beautiful and the scene is unique at the riverside, there are lots of locals sitting on the ground viewing the cherry blossom, and the atmosphere is very seasonal. Highly recommend to all of you.

It was October and the cherry blossom had long gone since the last visit but it is still an excellent walk and a good way to see downtown Tokyo without all the high rise and traffic. From Marunouchi and Hibiya park walk along to moat around the imperial palace and continue all the way around until you come back to... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this day, and there are long-standing restaurants with geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
