InformationInformation

Higashi Gyoen Garden (The Imperial Palace East Garden) is the only quarter of the Imperial Palace proper that is open to the public. The 53-acre classical garden was once the heart of Edo Castle, including the site where the castle's Tenshu-kaku donjon stood.
Visitors can enter the garden from three gates, which also used to be the gates of the castle. Ote-mon Gate located near Otemachi subway station is one of them and was formerly the principal gate of the castle. The garden features some 250,000 trees including representative prefectural trees, a small museum, several historical monuments and a small Japanese-style garden.
