    Excellent, seems as seen by foreign tourists, so Japan seems to be, is a very photogenic gate. You can ask the coexistence of history seems to be opposed to high buildings around Tokyo and ultra modern.

    Was at the main gate of Edo Castle in Imperial Palace Hotel attempted to be positioned and main gate. Access from the Otemachi station C13, 5 minutes from double Bridge station in about 10 minutes get. Good Annals (outemonn) and the origin of the gate is said to derive from the line of defense was built strictly for defense. And now, or from a major gate how to conquer the East gardens of the Imperial Palace!

    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.

    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.
