Serving as the main entrance of Imperial Palace, Kokyogaien is an eminent place to get your bearings before entering the main grounds of the palace.
Featuring some of the Palace's yaguras (watching towers), bridges, and gates, visitors can get a preview of what is the inside from this section of the National Garden. And once they have wrapped up their journey around the Emperor's residence, this garden serves as an agreeable resting area before continuing their sightseeing in Marunouchi.

A traveler, budding travel writer, and amateur author. Writing is my way to redo my amazing journey all over again. I started "Cheating the World" project and with it, I've made two of my annual trips in a form of a book: "Cheating Southern Vietnam", and "Cheating Hong Kong & Macau" (still in Bahasa Indonesia, sorry...). Japan? Of course it's on top of my writing list. It was too good to not be recorded.
