  • My favorite round, free, and anytime anyone is. Fushimi Inari Shrine is, Imperial garden area is based. Of course here many attractions including Imperial and Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department's largest security (for jurisdiction has changed from the Ministry of health and welfare in the Ministry of the environment) has been the Sakurada gate with double bridge. Masakado Taira neck mounds near worthy pilgrimage as a descendant of Emperor Kammu, Taira clan. 0/1868, when the Emperor Meiji's first East seafood through wadakura bridge, apparently entered the Edo Castle. And WADA came out "dead" said.  Aoki Shigeru "paradise under the this temple" or "hear voices of the ' image.

  • In the Park a vast moat and high-rise buildings are located across the Hibiya Street, nice contrast. The empty space was feeling well.

  • Do not know the definition of Imperial, but seems is called Imperial Palace square per. Is famous for TV news, etc, but when actually carried out and surprised at its size. When stopped, and expansive lawns were resting many foreign tourists. During the new emperor ascended the throne of 5/1/2019, this large square is filled with people.
