Tokyo Imperial Palace

Located in the Chiyoda ward of Tokyo on the site of what was once Edo Castle. Destroyed during World War 11 and has been rebuilt in the same style as it had been. Edo Castle is the primary residence of the Emperor of Japan. I loved the gardens with beautiful design and flowering trees.

Huge park surrounded by moats and massive stone walls.The view from Nijubashi bridge,also known as Seimon Stonebridge is something you wouldn’t want to miss. It provided a glimpse of the pomp and grandeur of that of the Imperial Palace. The cemented pathway leading to the bridge is where the Imperial carriage would passed on it’s way to the palace.
