Close to the Emperor Palace, this little park was once part of Edo Castle. There are some gates and moats as a reminiscence of older times. Specially beautiful to visit during the Fall season, Kitanomaru park is a great place to spend some hours under the sun, visiting some museums or watching some martial arts at the Nippon Buddokan
I used to say that there is not much to see around here since most of the palace is not open to the public. But east gardens are an exception.
