A gorgeous bridge.

This is a gorgeous bridge, just next to the Royal palace. The bridge provides a stunning photo-op and from the correct angle, some great photos can be taken.

Tennou is actually living with his wife, inside of this gate. Unfortunately we cannnot see directly the palace inside. But, if you strongly want to see inside of palace, you may go to Upper Floor restaurant, Palace Hotel. So expensive.

This was a beautiful place to spend the afternoon. If you like watching joggers this is the place to be. The views are amazing but be sure to stay off the grass area. It is forbidden to go onto the grass.

When walking through the enormous park nearby, you happen upon this bridge. The appeal however is only had from a few vantage points. It is a unique piece of history as well as a subject of nearly every person who has access to a camera, so I won't post my pictures here as they would look the same the other... More

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).
