Imperial Palace Plaza

Imperial palace plaza
Imperial palace plaza is a park which is located out side of the Imperial palace.
And it is next to East garden of the Imperial palace.
This park is near to Tokyo station.

Many pine trees are planted in the large park.
And you can see many architectures of former Edo castle such as gates, bridges, moats and turrets.
Because Imperial palace is located on the site of former Edo castle which was residence of Tokugawa shogun in Edo Era.

Ai; It is not Tokugawa but Kusunoki Masashige.
He was a 14th century Samurai.

The picture with the statue of the samouraï and the one with the white house in the angle, near the water, are my two favorites. This place seems to be out of time.This is another peaceful place in the middle of the modern city, like an oasis of quietness and empty space..Very beautyful
