On April 8th, I visited Chidorigafuchi & Kitanomaru Koen Park (Kokyo Gaien National Gardens) to see cherry blossoms.
Chidorigafuchi is a moat located in the northwest area of the Imperial Palace, famous for its cherry blossoms nearby. During the season, the cherry trees of the greenway are lit up (though canceled this year), and visitors can enjoy themselves in a boat on the moat.


Imperial Palace and Chidorigafuchi

While most of the Emperor’s Imperial Gardens are closed to the public, Kitanomaru Park and the Imperial Palace East Gardens are available for spectators to gather and appreciate the cherry blossoms’ display. The northeastern section of Kitanomaru Park is called Chidorigafuchi, and boats are available to rent close to the Hanzomon station.
