≪Autumn Foliage Spots≫ Kitanomaru Park
Colored foliage in various places in the park can be seen
The name Kitanomaru Park is derived from the fact that it was the site of the northern enceinte (kitanomaru), so-called because it was located to the north of the inner citadel (honmaru) of Edo Castle. The kitanomaru was opened to the public as a woodland park in 1969.
The extensive lawns, the ponds, and the diverse array of flowers, shrubs and trees create scenery that belies the park’s location at the heart of the metropolis, and it is an ideal place for observing insects and wild birds. The National Museum of Modern Art is located next to the park whilst the park itself is home to the Science Museum and the Nippon Budokan.
Kitanomaru Park is known as the sights of autumn foliage, especially the colored Momiji in the “Momiji-en (Maple Gardens)” located in the west side of the park is brilliant.
Zelkova and Ginkgo around the pond in the center of the park and Ginkgo in front of the Nippon Budokan are also popular as autumn foliage spots.
