Tokyo Imperial Palace & Kitanomaru Park

Imperial Palace

In the middle of Tokyo sits the residence of the Japanese Emperor, the Imperial Palace. In practice, it’s just a large park surrounded by a moat with no "palace" to see (in the sense of one specific building), but a collection of lakes, gardens, bridges, and nicely curated walking paths. It’s pretty much the exact opposite experience of visiting Shibuya crossing, so it provided a nice balance to the activities of the previous days.

  1. Did you use a collage app for the 2008 pictures? You're so lucky you went here twice and your travel photography always amazes me.
