Took a walk Tokyo Imparial Palace in spring

by Amethyst - TripleLights travel specialist

 The beautiful cherry blossoms started falling in last weekend. It was really comfortable temperature (around 25 degrees) in Tokyo, then soooooo many foreign tourist visited Imparial Palace! 

 At first, we walked around outside of the palace (Koukyogaien). I took a picture of Main Gate Stone Bridge (Seimon Ishibashi) . The bridge was built as a main gate bridge of Edo castle when the castle was repaired in Edo era.
