Third place is Chidorigafuchi.
Chidorigafuchi is part of Imperial Palace Tokyo.
Here is Tayasu Gete.Entrance of Kitanomaru Park.
Here are also beautiful Sakura.
This is Nippon Budokan(means Japan Martial Art Hall).
Here is used for various Japanese Martial arts competition.
And many concert is held.
Famous UK musician,The Beatles held concert here.
When I went here,large buses had been staying for a long time.So,I could not take photo from front.
There are beautiful flowers except Sakura.
I think this is bud.It’s funny.
People can be relax on lawn area.
Visitors can close to Chidorigafuchi.
But ground is rough.So visitors should wear shoes which easy to walk.
Here is also nice place.
Passing through National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo Crafts Gallery,
and crossing highway,there is Chidorigafuchi walking path.
Here is also rough ground!
Opposite side of road is beautiful white wall of Imperial Palace.
Around Imperial Palace is popular among runners.
Highway.Chidorigafuchi boat area is over there.
People ware resting.Those chairs are former pedestal of anti-aircraft fire.
Memory of WW2.This is a peaceful scene.I hope to last this peaceful time.
I came from opposite side,here was a sign of Chidrigafuchi walking path.
Here is boat riding area of Chidorigafuchi.
So many people!
It looks happy!
I was late to get to,so it was already evening.
Observatory was so crowed!!
But I tried.This is from observatory.
I couldn’t stay there long time.
I took night Sakura scenes.
And I felt my lens(24-120mm F4) is too dark.
So I had to do long exposure.Or too noisy photos in case handheld shooting.
To use tripod was not prohibited except part of places.So visitors could use tripod unless disturb other visitors.
At any rate,here is so many people.To find shooting place is difficult.
I recommend to go early,and search your favorite place.
And Sakura is moved by wind,it becomes blur.
This was tough shooting.I took many photos.
This is famous angle.
After shooting,I went to Kudanshita station to go home.
On the way to the station,I discovered Tokyo tower with Chidorigafuchi.
There was like battle field!!!If you want to take Tokyo Tower,you have to go front line!!
But I could take this photo…
