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.

We wanted to visit the palace and we seen this beautiful bridge out front. I took some great pictures. It is really pretty. Highly recommend checking it out. I recommended 3+ hours to check out the palace at the same time the garden is Gorgeous.

I asked my Japanese friends where the name “Ni-ju Bashi” came from. The stone bridge we could see in front of us had two arches, but was not a “two-tiered” bridge. When we went further, we could also see another bridge (iron bridge) behind (further up) the stone bridge. As we could see these two bridges together in two levels,... More

Having walked through the East Gardens we found this very popular stone bridge, which is popular with both tourists and the locals as well, if you get there when several tour buses are there you could have a long wait to get your pictures, so be prepared to hang around for a while, but worth waiting.

Not many words to describe it: The Best Spot you will find for pictures in Edo Imperial Palace. The rest is just gardens (very beautiful indeed), turrets, walls and pits. Recommended as a must stop for photo enthusiasts.
