  • A huge area. Everything is cultivated beautifully and so pleasing. The huge smooth handmade wall surrounded by an imposing moat makes you wonder how much labor went into this..

  • A piece of perfectly kept serenity in the middle of the city. Adjacent to the Imperial Palace, open to the public. Spacious, green and zen. Visited on a Saturday, and wasn’t too busy. Had a wonderful leisurely stroll around the complex.
  • Decided to take a stroll to the East Gardens of the Imperial Palace and was super happy that I did! The gardens/grounds are absolutely beautiful and we'll worth the trip to Chiyoda City to come and see them! It's funny as there were many people there, but in no way did it ever feel crowded😊👍 With all my Mettā, Noah
