Imperial Palace Tokyo Attractions
As you probably already understand, it is not allowed for the guests to enter the site (buildings and inner gardens), however you can still arrange the tour around the area and East gardens. It is truly rare that the guests can get in the castle – it happens only twice a year but of course it again is not a tourism attraction. One must understand that the importance of this building is what makes it so special among all the other palaces in Japan. There is also a large plaza located in front of the castle from where you can see Nijubashi bridges.
