Chidorigafuchi Park is situated between the Chidorigafuchi moat that marks the western edge of the Imperial Palace grounds and the British Embassy. It is famous for the Chidorigafuchi Pedestrian Path that follows the course of the moat, and also for being one of the best places in Tokyo to view cherry blossom. There are a total of around 170 cherry trees in the Park—including trees of the Yoshino and North Japanese hill cherry hill cherry varieties—and the cherry blossom is at its best between late March and early April each year. Many people come here to enjoy the cherry blossom, including couples, tourists, and office workers stopping off on their way home from work. The “Chiyoda Cherry Blossom Festival” is held in the area when the cherry blossom is in full bloom; during the Festival, the cherry trees along the Chidorigafuchi Pedestrian Path are illuminated at night, and the Chidorigafuchi boat pier extends its opening hours so that people can take boats out on the moat in the evening. Chidorigafuchi Park has toilets; there is no parking. The nearest station is Hanzomon Station.

Tokyo Main Areas
The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It's hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world's tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you're in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
