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.
