The Imperial Palace

(0 votes, average 0 out of 5)

ImageMuch of the palace is closed, however, tourists can stroll the grounds of the palace where the once magnificent Edo Castle stood. The palace houses the royal family and the foundations of the castle are open to public viewing. Edo Castle became in effect the ruling seat of the Shogun in the early 1600s. Nearly 300 years later when the Shogunate fell and imperial rule was restored the royal family moved here. A lot of Japan’s history is embodied in this building, from the years of the Shogun to Imperial rule to the fate suffered by the Palace much of which was razed during WWII.
