Imperial Palace Plaza is located in the center of Tokyo, immersed in natural beauty by the surrounding trees, flowers and moats. Constructed on what was once the location of Edo Castle, the building is home to the Emperor of Japan. From KokyoGaien, the large plaza in front of the Imperial Palace, visitors can view the Nijuubashi, two bridges that form an entrance to the inner palace grounds.
The inner grounds of the palace are not open to the public but visitors can witness the beautiful scenery of the palace and its surroundings. A large lawn with pine groves stretches from the road to the middle of the plaza. On the north side of the plaza stands a fountain commemorating the marriage of the Emperor and Empress. A bronze statue of Kusunoki Masashige, 14th century samurai loyal to the emperor, stands on the south size of the plaza. The stunning sight of the current Imperial Palace makes it a popular spot for tourists and a beautiful place to have a nice walk and can be experienced in most tours through Japan Deluxe Tours.
