  • Also known as the "castle entrance gate". Tōdō Takatora castle building renowned for its design, but the shogunate ordered the construction of stone walls of the left and right and square shape Masamune. This is the 0/1620 (1620). And the construction scale of Sendai-Han laborers took over some 420000 people said. Now many tourists go there. There is a simple luggage inspection. Still in the feeling that the main gate of Edo Castle, a stately appearance.

  • In old Edo castle main gate (gate to meet the Envoy, generals and generals), tōdō Takatora is built in 1607. Korai gate was destroyed in 1657 and was rebuilt in 1659, it seems. Corridor is of 1657 destroyed after made in the reconstruction, was rebuilt in 1968, disappeared after World War II in 1945. SCLE is installed until 1945. Let's enter from the main gate, the main gate.

  • Big, beautiful and quiet. An happy "island" in the middle of the new and modern Tokyo. Really beautiful.
  • You could easily soend 2 hours walking around here. There are different entrances,but the main one has a restaurant, bathroom and picnic area where you can enjoy outside food and relation before/after the gardens.
  • This is the main entrance to get into the imperial gardens. There is a cursory check of bags you bring in, so please don't have your luggage with you. Admission is free, and the grounds are well maintained year round. Even if the flowers are not in season, it's still worth a visit to look at the stone walls, towers, and otherwise marvel at the neatness of the entire complex.
  • Beautiful garden. Peaceful. But not what I was expecting for imperial palace vicinity. Imperial palace only open for visit few days a year...
  • A big place to walk. Large grass field. Feels serene. There's remains of a castle compound. In the autumn some leaves change into a beautiful colour.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
