Soto sakurada mon was a gate of former Edo castle.
In the present, It is an entrance of Imperial palace plaza.
So we can go through the gate freely.

That's a massive gate! Definitely defensive too. Magnificent!

A gate that is both welcoming and forbidding. Looks like a great place to spend an afternoon.

It's a very impressive gate, that could probably withstand strong enemies. Nice that now it's just a place to enjoy.

This is'nt supposed to be funny or anything like that; it's just, my last name is Sakurada so this is very interesting.
