The two tiered Nijubashi bridge crosses the moat into the imperial palace. It is only accessible to the public on the Emperor's birthday on the 23rd December and the 2nd January.

This is perhaps the best picture spot in Tokyo? A must stop to grab a picture for your memories. It can be very busy at times.

You can’t visit the palace, but can only view it from the park. Still a beautiful place to see and a bit isolated from all of the traffic so it’s a peaceful spot.

Nijû-bashi is also known as "double bridge" and is located within the Imperial Palace. The bridge forms access to the Imperial Palace and is in a picturesque settting. Great to take photos of with the Imperial Palace in the background.

This in reality is the only view of the Imperial Palace by the general public and is a great sight when you get to the right spot for a photo.

Running around the palace is a super nice experience. You get to see the old and the new of Tokyo. If you have time, walk inside the palace to make a visit tour.

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
