Chidorigafuchi Boathouse

Around Town


Chidorigafuchi is famous for its spectacular sakura, which include around 200 somei-yoshino and yamazakura cherry blossom trees. Renting a boat at this boathouse, located in the centre of Chidorigafuchi Park, and paddling under the flowering branches as they reach out over the moat, is one of Tokyo’s sakura-season must-dos.
