Renting a rowboat is a good way to explore the moat and view the cherry blossoms from the water.

This place is the most beautiful place ever during the Sakura season! I highly recommend spending a whole day here. In the morning, take a boat ride on the lake and chill and in the evening, the lights make the place even more gorgeous and from a point it's also possible to see the Tokyo Tower!

This is my first trip to Tokyo. My sweetie had to go there on business, but we had plenty of time to spend together and enjoy outings. I was scared at first. What if I show myself to be a complete moron? This Latina loves learning about different cultures, and I’m open to discovering the unknown, but I wouldn’t want to offend anyone or appear too crass. My sweetie is part Japanese (mom), part Canadian (dad), born in North Carolina, and raised in Central London, with dual citizenship. (I know — it was hard for me to keep up too.) He told me not to worry. He was right. The people were wonderful, so welcoming and friendly. Tokyo is gorgeous. The best part? Chidorigafuchi.
I couldn’t tear my eyes from my surroundings. The cherry blossoms are absolutely eye-catching! Instagram doesn’t do it justice, no matter how well the pics are formatted. I was worried the blossoms wouldn’t be out so early in April, but there were areas where they had completely sprouted. It was so beautiful. The whole experience... I'd only traveled to Europe prior to this, but I look forward to going to Japan again. I also look forward to visiting other Asian countries. I will never forget such a wonderful experience! Downsides? It was crowded. But hey, that's tourism for you. At least we went early, at the break of dawn, and the park was almost empty for a while. I am in love with Tokyo, and I can't wait to go back!

Perfect Hanami spot 😃
Have a stroll there during hanami (of course it’s gonna be crowded) but what a view !
There is less people during the week (but still a lot)
Lights off at 10 PM.
The view from the other side is not really good for hanami but otherwise during daytime it’s a good spot to relax having a stroll away from the city.
