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 grounds of the real Imperial Palace are only open to the public on New Years Day and the Emperor’s birthday (February 23).
