Sakurada Bori (moat)

sakurada bori(moat)
I took this photo on harumi-dori (street) at hibiya.
Sakurada bori was a moat of edo castle.
You can see the national diet building in distance.
(It looks very small in this photo.)

It was a quite large moat and now looks like a very peaceful lake. Really a beautiful image.

It's beautiful. Very powerful looking body of water.

Looks like a reflecting pool! All this green scenery around Tokyo is so beautiful!

The moat must have been very tall to give such an aera of quiet water..A place to protect against the war became a place of great peace.

Beautiful shot! How interesting that you have a "National Diet Building" - what is its purpose? Is it educational?
