Many of the locals recommended this place for sakura viewing. Initially I was puzzled by the name and was wondering where this was but I later found out that it’s actually one of the moats of the Imperial Palace.
I had exited from the subway station and was kinda following the crowds to get to the sakura viewing site (heh heh… was assuming that everyone was there for the cherry blossoms – but I was right!) and the sight which greeted me just took my breath away!!
Boats may be hired for rides on the moat.
Had a wander around and took this shot of the sakura with one of the gates to the palace.
Even the birds were enjoying the flowers! (^o^)
