Impressive Bridge In An Impressive Place

The bridge leads into the Palace itslef and it cannot be accessed. It is an impressive old bridge and well worth a visit if you are at the Imperial Palace or Marunoucho

Nijuubashi is an important landmark on a visit to the Imperial Palace, Tokyo's iconic "crown jewel." A good shot when the light is right captures Fushimi Yagura in the backdrop, a surviving castle turret. When walking around the Imperial Palace, walk counter-clockwise, as the runners do. It is 5 kilometers to make one loop. It is about as nice a... More

It's worth stopping by so you can say you say the bridge but, after 2 seconds, you're done and you can move on.

I went to Tokyo on business in May and September 2016. Both times I stopped at Niju Bashi which is part of the Imperial Palace. You can come here after a visit to the Imperial Palace Gardens. This spot is a very famous place for taking photos as the bridge is very beautiful in all seasons. After you go here... More

Lovely view, but the impressive photos are invariably a zoom in. Plus don't underestimate the walk from Tokyo train station, it took about 20 mins of solid walking. All in, a cute option if you have the time and a very different feel from other parts of the city (Shinjuku, Shibuya etc).

This bridge is beautiful, specially during the sunset. No need to enter the castle to enjoy this beautiful view on this historical landmark.

The bridge and the scenic view of the palace gate in the background is worth a visit if you are nearby. But I’ve found more interesting the organized Japanese tours coming and queuing for a group photo here. It is said that this is the nearest place to the Emperor form outside the Palace.

This bridge leads to one of the entrances to the Imperial Palace with no public access but it is old and historic like most of the area around the Imperial Palace Moat. If you have time it is well worth it to walk around the moat and the palace and from the highest point you do get a good view... More

This is a beautiful bridge leading to one of the gates to the Imperial Castle grounds. The access is blocked off and guarded. Still it was nice to approach the bridge without a large perimeter fence keeping people at a far distance.

When we visited, the Palace was closed to visitors, so we walked around and found some nice places to take photos of the palace, moat and bridge. Next visit we will make sure we can get into the palace grounds.
