Panorama TOKYO : Imperial Palace  

Imperial Palace Grounds is rich in green and waters in the center of Tokyo. Most of tourist parties from overseas visit here, the Imperial Palace Plaza. You can see Tokyo Tower and high-rise buildings at Kasumigaseki reflected in the water of Kikyo-bori Moat, for the restriction of the surrounding scenery around the Palace. The twofold keep (watchhouse) Tatsumi-yagura on the moatside gives us a trace of the old Edo Castle. World-famous Double Bridge is near here.

You can also come across "marathon-man" on the sidewalk, running a course of one round 5 km around the Palace on a holiday.
