Search Tokyo hotels

Built on the site of Edo Castle , the current Imperial Palace sits in the centre of Tokyo , within beautifully landscape gardens. A large plaza named Kokyo Gaien can be found at the front of the Imperial Palace, and from this plaza visitors have a great view across the grounds and of the Nijubashi bridge and the Meganebashi bridge, this a pair of bridges that have been constructed to allow access to the inner grounds.

The former of these two bridges was originally constructed of wood and was built with two levels; the later bridge was constructed from stone. The inner buildings of the palace are closed to the public; all other parts of the palace grounds can either be explored at will, or toured with the aid of a guide.

The palace has played an important part in Japanese culture for decades and is generally believed to be a good example of traditional Japanese architecture. Kokyo Gaien Chiyoda Japan,Telephone: 81 33213 1111
