IMPERIAL PALACE - JAPAN




When the Emperor Meiji moved Japan's capital from Kyoto to Tokyo, a new palace was built in Tokyo. The current Imperial Palace (Kokyo) is located on the former site of Edo Castle, a large park area surrounded by moats and massive stone walls in the center of Tokyo, a short walk from Tokyo station.
