"The Imperial Palace is located..." Imperial Palace(Kokyo Gaien National Garden) Tip by AndreasK


The <b>Imperial Palace</b> is located in the center of modern Tokyo, where Tokugawa Ieyasu built his castle at the end of the 16th century. The castle remained the political and military center until the end of the Tokugawa reign in 1867. After the capital moved from Kyoto to Tokyo, the new imperial palace was built at the same location as the Tokugawa castle. The palace had to be rebuilt after being completely destroyed during World War II. The castle is not open to the public, with the exception of the East garden.
