The Stone Base of Edo Castle's Main Tower

I took these photos in Higashi Gyoen (The East Gardens of Imperial Palace).
There once was a five storied main tower of Edo castle on the base.
It was burnt down by great fire in 1657.

Photos below are views from top of the base.

These photos were taken on September 22 , 2010.

The big stones and the high view give us an idea of the size of the castle before it burned.;Great place, and it's easy to understand why it was built THERE..

The remains of the inner enclosure of the Edo castle are still giving a hope and inspiration us for peace.
