The next stop on our tour of Tokyo was The Imperial Palace. This is the main residence of the Emperor of Japan. We did get to walk up the pathway to the right in this pic, but the views were actually better from the grounds on this other side of the moat.
The Palace is situated in approximately 3 and a half acres of garden in the center of Tokyo. We could only view it from outside the grounds, and was surrounded by a moat.
I just loved the bridge over the moat. It reminded me of the old European bridges that i have seen photos of.
