TOKYO | Located on the site of the former Edo Castle, and surrounded by a moat is the Imperial Palace in Tokyo’s Chiyoda district. The palace is the primary residence of the Emperor of Japan and contains, along with the Imperial family’s private residences, some outer areas that are open to the public, including the spacious East Gardens.

The Imperial Palace that stands today was built in the 1960s on the western side of the grounds, to replace the Meiji Era palace that was constructed in 1888 and destroyed by Allied bombs during World War II. It was built in much the same style as the Meiji era palace, which was located on the eastern side of the grounds and today forms part of a public park. While most of the structures that stood here no longer exist, visitors can still see some of the moats, walls, entrance gates and guardhouses, as well as the stone base of the original Edo Castle from 1638.

The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
