This is a beautiful park. Unfortunately when we were here in late March of 2017 the Sakura were just starting to bloom but it must be spectacular when they are in full bloom. This park is also home to Nippon Budokan where so many famous live albums were recorded. In addition the Science Museum and the National Museum of Modern... More

This is a large park that is essentially part of the Imperial Palace area and is well worth a visit. It is very well maintained and a great expanse of green in the middle of Tokyo.

This park is part of the site of the Imperial Palace, and facilities have a museum and a library in addition to the park. Its large site was perfect for a walk, and many people enjoyed picnics in the square. It is a place where everyone from children to elderly people are able to relax.

This park has a great lake lined with Sakura and a great view of Tokyo Tower in the background. A great place to visit during Sakura season.

The park itself is gorgeous, especially on the West Moat, Chidorigafuchi, during the cherry blossom season soon to come, when it is bumper-to-bumper with strollers. The park is also the location of the Budookan, built for the 1964 Olympics and where I was fortunate to view the World Kendo championships, held only 3 times in Tokyo and at which Japanese... More

Cozy park with trails throughout the whole forest, perfect for a stroll. Also has a huge open area where you can picnic or just relax on the grass. Lots of interesting plants, animals (including turtles, lizards and ducks!) and a great place for relaxing, with clean toilets nearby (Visited: June 2015)

The park is pretty close to Imperial Gardens. The place is a recreational area for picnics, playing with kids and drawing. You can come there for one of these activities or simply watch the locals having fun:)

From the north entrance, I went up the big wide stairs to where the Park is on a higher ground, and was a little "turned off" right there by the wild grass & shrubs on those stairs; and once up there, saw the park "crowded" in a sense that the trees were kind of "closely spaced", giving the place an...

really nothing to see here in February maybe if you go in the summer it will look good, but in February it is really not worth a visit at all. it's just a big pond with some greenery around. and you have to pay to enter

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.
