Nice museum and gardens, but I would have liked to see the palace too, even if from a distance. This is in Tokyo, of course.

Take a whole day if you really want to see everything. Buy a 10 yuan (£1) map or you may miss a lot as many buildings look the same at first glance.

I suggest a visit early in the day before the crowds arrive because some areas are very hard to navigate. Take the boat ride back to the entrance after a visit to the marble boat

There are some great photos to be had so don't let the crowds or your guide rush you. The rocks, water, trees and buildings are all part of Classical Chinese gardens
