Tokyo Imperial Palace Ninomaru Gardens  (東御苑の二の丸庭園)

The Japanese garden of the Tokyo Imperial Palace can be found in the secondary circle of defense of the palace, the Ninomaru (second circle).
This is the place where the most important palace buildings once stood.
The Edo castle was the residence of the shoguns of the Tokugawa shogunate between 1603 and 1867, but also the Meiji emperor resided here before moving to the Imperial Palace "next door".
The gardens of the Imperial Palace are only open to the public on New Years Day and the Emperor's birthday (December 23).
