About Imperial Palace in Tokyo

The Imperial Palace located in Tokyo, which literally also means Imperial Residence, is the primary residing place of the Emperor of Japan. At present, the Tokyo Imperial Palace is located on the former site of a massive park arena covered by massive stone walls and moats right in the middle of Tokyo known as Edo Castle. It is located in Chiyoda ward of Tokyo, in close proximity to the Tokyo Station. Japan’s Imperial family has taken up residence here, and it remains a royal attraction for visitors coming from all over the world.

The Imperial Palace in Tokyo is constructed in the form of a large park, and comprises several buildings in the main palace where the Imperial Family of Japan resides. The Palace also features an archive, several museums and administrative offices in its premises. The entire area occupied by the Imperial Palace is 1.15 sq kms which also includes the gorgeous gardens.

History of the Imperial Palace in Tokyo

The Imperial Palace in Tokyo was constructed on the sites of Edo Castle. In 1873, Edo Castle was destroyed in a fire. In 1888, lots of restoration works were carried out and a new Imperial Palace was built. The entire area is surrounded by thick walls and is home to many buildings and gardens.

Significance of the Imperial Palace in Tokyo

The Imperial Palace in Tokyo is also known to be the largest green area in the central part of Tokyo. The Palace along with the famous Kokyogaien National Gardens make up for the most green area in the city. There is a long trail of 5 km inside the Palace where joggers come every morning either for a walk or run. There are three main parts of the Imperial Palace grounds - the Imperial Palace itself, East Garden, and Kokyo Gaien National Park. In the Imperial Palace in Tokyo, you will find the Imperial Residence, Fukiage Omiya Palace, Imperial Palace, the Imperial Household Agency buildings, Momijiyama Imperial Cocoonery, the Imperial Concert Hall and the East Garden of the Imperial Palace.

Entry to the grounds of the Imperial Palace in Tokyo takes place only twice a year - on the 2nd of January during New Year's Greeting and 23rd of December during the Emperor's birthday. It is only during these two days when visitors are permitted entry to the inner palace grounds to have a glimpse of the Imperial Family. You have to book the entry at least a day in advance.

    Aradhanapia's 13 days trip to Tokyo

    Thanks for a nice trip. There were many positives and nice / polite helps which enables this marvelous trip. If you want an appreciation mail, We can give a detailed one separately. In this mail we are concentrating on improvement points. There were several errors and faults/gaps that could have be
    en easily avoided. Overall we would like to rate the trip as 3.8 out of 5 scale regarding your help and service. The points to be noted. 1 ) In the bus from Haneda airport the driver asked " which Apa hotel you are going ? ... There are many Apa Hotels ? You should have told us ( Aradhana Family and the driver ) that the Apa Hotel near Nishi Shinjuku Gochome station is where we are going. I am attaching a screenshot from google maps in this discussion. You can help your customers with these kind of screen shot maps. As we were not sure, the driver found out with lot of trying with Japanese maps. 2 ) In Haneda airport we were busy locating the driver and searching for data card, so that we can establish communication. The condition that Tokyo metro pass can be activated only from Haneda airport was a big error choice from your side. We missed that and lost that pass fully. Metro train pass can be easily bought anywhere. You should have left that option to us, in case the driver did not turn up. 3 ) For Tokyo tour the bases leaves from a building next to Shinjuku police station. The police station is very prominently known by all. While searching " Love Building " or Love sign or Love statue in front of some building we realized that almost everyone does not speak English, nor there is any building named as " Love Building ". It was 1 chome Building and on the Footpath LOVE is made by structure. 3 ) At Toyoma no one speaks English. The Boys and Girls, Men and Women in Hotel counter also do not speak English. There was big confusion to realize that our rooms were booked the Number to Annex building 1/2 km away in Toyoko Inn Hotel chain and not in the main one near the station. If it was in the building near the station it would have been only 1 km walk with lots of luggage. We had to walk 1/2 km more. There was no lock in the bathrooms of the rooms to Toyoko Inn Hotel ( annex 2 ). These kind of rooms are dangerous as can cause major misunderstanding is someone enters the bathroom, while someone else is using it. 4 ) At Nagoa The Red Planet Hotel was very nice. But very far from Main Railway station. You should have advised us to go to the Hotel by Taxi from Station. We took train to a small station and then walked more than 2 km with luggage, as we were not sure of the best choices. 5 ) In general try to communicate to people with description of multiple landmarks. Your decision of sending our passports to Bangalore office after being rejected from Delhi should have been told to us. We were not aware of these decisions taken by you. We came to know about Visa delay very late. As per our understanding of dates, you sat on our passport, without any action for almost 1 week,( at Gurgaon ) and then rushed around. This is the main reason why we rated your service as 3.8 out of 5. Thanks and Regards Aradhana and Subhashish
