The Imperial Palace is the primary residence of the Emperor of Japan. It is a large park-like area located in Tokyo’s central Chiyoda ward. Set on the site of the former Edo Castle, the modern Imperial Palace is a series of buildings and gardens designed to facilitate the functions of the Japanese Imperial Family. Visitation to the main palace grounds is regulated and arrangements must be made well in advance. However, the East Gardens are generally accessible and rank among the most beautiful gardens in Japan. Taking some time to wander through and admire the delicate floral arrangements is well worth it.

Tokyo Imperial Palace is home to the Emperor of Japan and his family. The Imperial Palace grounds is made of three main parts: the Imperial Palace, the East Garden and Kokyo Gaien National Park. This place is simply majestic. You get royal vibes at this place. This is situated in the center of bustling city. The place is very calm and filled with serenity. This is a iconic place to get a picture with the castle. The place is easily accessible. The easiest way to get there is by train which was what I did.

[To visit the Imperial Palace in Tokyo]
Generally with the group tour Tokyo, there is one attraction is the Imperial Palace Double Bridge, but that is only a photo taken from the outside and can not be entered. If you want to enter the Imperial Palace, there are two ways: First, make an online appointment in advance, you can choose the date of the current month and next month; the second is to line up in front of the platycodon. Generally, there is one visit in the morning and afternoon, free of charge, Sunday, Monday and holidays are not open, the specific date refers to the official website.
This time with the elders to play in Tokyo, specifically proposed to visit the Imperial Palace. The number of reservations in advance is full. At 9 o'clock, I will come to the number plate of the bellflowers. After the passport is checked, I will issue the listing and wait in the window hall. The souvenir shop and the restroom are here, and after about an hour or so of walking, there is no restroom. The
route is specified. There are three teams. The explanations are divided into English, Chinese, and Japanese. The Chinese group has the largest number. The entire tour was carried out outdoors, passing through Fujitsu, the palace hall, the palace east court, the lotus pond and other places, and looking at the double bridge from another angle. The palace was rebuilt in the 1960s, so the overall feeling is relatively new. Although it can't be entered, you can learn more about it.
The Imperial Palace is the place where the Emperor usually lives. The Imperial Palace consists of the "God House" (the place where the Emperor lived), the "Palace" (the place where various public ceremonies and government affairs are held), and the Palace House (an administrative body in Japan).
Visiting the Imperial Palace is generally the outer periphery of the Imperial Palace, including the Imperial Palace, the Imperial Palace, and the North Zhimao Park, across the moat. In the outer court, you can see the double bridge across the moat. Although it can't go up, it is the innermost view of the imperial home that tourists can see. It is a hot spot. Dong Yu Yuan is a royal garden with a lot of historical buildings and courtyard views. The Thousand Birds in the northwest is Tokyo's famous cherry blossom viewing spot, next to Kitakamiru Park, where many citizens run, ride or walk.
