Owner description: These beautiful gardens are located outside of the Imperial Palace. Access to the gardens is open to the public although the palace itself is off limits.

We loved walking around the gardens and although it was very cold and grey, the light mist softened the scenery and allowed us a quiet, relatively tourist free day.

We spent hours walking around this very large garden. It was stunning and really needs a good half day to appreciate it.

From the moment you enter the gate to these gardens, you know you are in for a treat. They are immaculate. At this time of year (early Dec) the colours of the trees are magnificent. The ancient walls, faithfully restored, give a real sense of the shogun period. The guard houses previously manned by samurai wait ominously around the bend in the road through the walls. Everywhere there are explanations of work past and in progress in both Japanese and English. There are clean rest-rooms and a restaurant and some beautiful sites (and sights) for keen photographers. This is a must-do while on vacation in Tokyo. Incredibly, it is also free.

Even on a late November Day, the East Gardens were beautiful. There were a lot of English translations at crucial sites and there was a lot to see. We could have spent a full day just wandering around the paths.
