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.

If you want to get a great picture without going into the grounds, then this is the picture you want to take. You can get to this from the streets surrounding the Imperial Palace.

There were many foreigners, less Japanese. The true Ni-ju Bashi is over a front bridge, that is made of steel. It was clear weather in winter, so a bridge is very beautiful. I reccommend it as one of the scenic points around the imperial palace. It takes 15 minutes walk from Ni-ju bashi mae station Chiyoda line.
