Tokyo Imperial Palace Tour

The Imperial Palace moved from Kyoto to Tokyo about 200 or so years ago. Here we are just outside the grounds.
The tour was strictly controlled with obaasan (grandmas) in tow.
To join, apply in advance on-line. Luckily they had Enligsh headsets explaining everything!
This way sir -- the 1.5 hour guided tour is almost over.
Just imagine, one giant, expensive piece of real estate in central Tokyo right next to the financial district! Whoo-hoo!
