Chidorigafuchi, a famous sightseeing spot in Tokyo

Chidorigafuchi in Chiyoda, Tokyo is a moat northwest of the Imperial Palace.
There is an event called the “Chiyoda Cherry Blossom Festival” where the cherry blossoms are lit up at night in the spring.
We recommend taking a look at the breathtaking cherry blossoms reflecting off the surface of the water.

Chidorigafuchi is a moat made after the opening of Edo in 1603. The moat was constructed as an expansion of the former Edo Castle.
To create it, they blocked the river using earthen bridges at Hanzomon gate and Tayasumon gate.
It used to be connected to the moat bordering Daikancho street, but it was reclaimed for road construction in 1900, and it became a separate moat.
Hanzo moat is next to Chidorigafuchi park.

There is a boat dock in the Chidorigafuchi green way, and you can enjoy the view of cherry blossoms from the boat.
We recommend taking a boat ride to avoid the crowds.
The nearest stations are Hanzomon station and Kudange subway station.
It is only a 5-minute walk from both stations.
There are no parking spots near Chidorigafuchi green way, so we recommend taking public transportation to Chidorigafuchi. Most poeple probably think of Tokyo tower and Tokyo Sky Tree when they think of tourist spots in Tokyo, but Chidorigafuchi is an amazing place for sightseeing.
There's also Nippon Budokan and the British Embassy in the area as well.
