During the Chiyoda Sakura Festival, held every year from the beginning of March through the end of April, the sakura tree branches are lit up with LED lights, and look beautiful as they reach down for the water. It is a famous spot for viewing sakura cherry blossoms, Chidorigafuchi is a part of the imperial palace moat. A highly recommended night ride in one of the sakura viewing boats allows you to gaze up from below at the flowers.
