This place is truly magical when the cherry blossoms are out in full force. Akin to a movie, this park is a photographers dream with picture worthy spots at every corner. While the hordes of locals and tourists alike ensure that finding a suitable spot...More

This place was absolutely fantastic when we saw the sakura. It was very near to full bloom when we were there; I can't imagine a better place to stare at the flowers.

I visited the palace in late april, just right after the peak cherry blossom season so I did get sold onto the hype and started looking for cool cherry blossom viewing spots. Right at the tail end of the north end is Chidorigafuchi, one of...More

The prettiest spot is just a short walk near the Kudanshita station, also at the boat parking during sunset. Start early to avoid crowd.

I went to Tokyo in April 2016 which most of sakura were gone, however this area was still had full blooming sakura, i’m so lucky to see it. It’s very beautiful and romantic scene among the modern building in Tokyo.

The queue for boating rides could get really long. Not worth the wait. The walk in the park along the illumination was pretty.

1 week of the year during the cherry blossom this place transforms to a magical land of Japanese beauty. Any other week of the year its just a moat around a palace nothing special to see or do.

There had a lovely view of cherry blossom during in season. It was very crowded because of cherry blossom. You can not imagine how beautiful it is. It's worth to go there.

The moat is located next to Yasukuni Shrine and Edo Castle, this place is definitely one of the best place for sakura viewing whether viewing from afar or while boating! Picturesque hanami at any spot along the moat :D Would definitely come back here again...More

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.

No; it is a short walk from the subway station and is basically a walkway along the moat of the Imperial Palace. There is a boat ride you can do which I believe will cost you something. I don't know what the fee was as we... More

In august its just a Moat surounded by water it may be nice if you take a boat and row it in the canal a bit other that that its nothing special. Beter go to Shinjuku Gyoen and Hie shrine finish off in Askusa temple.

In autumn, foliage colours are not as impressive in the garden, compared to spring time sakura blooming week. Still a nice garden to stroll in, though. Might catch some colours in between.
