Chidorigafuchi, Tokyo

#46 of 5,477 in Things to do in Tokyo
Landmark · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
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.

  • 春に行ったときの写真です。桜で有名な場所です。 The next to Yasukuni Shirine is Chidorigafuchi. About 260 cherry trees are here. Beautiful and graceful... Once a year, Japanese people really get crazy about cherry blossoms, so many people come to see them here, the station is full of people, the train is full of people, and this location is very full of people. But, Japanese people want to see cherry blossoms to greet the spring... but not last year due to COVID. I hope the situation get better this year.
  • A postcard-perfect street for the nature lover in every one of us no matter where you're from.
