Tokyo Imperial Palace only opens up for the public twice a year, its second round coming up. Visitors can take a 1km walk from the ground’s Sakashita Gate towards Inui Gate whilst enjoying the gorgeous autumn scenery. This is an opportunity to take a glance into a usually closed and secretive community. Huge crowds are expected so get there early.
9am – 3pm. Free entry. Sakashita Gate, 1 Chiyoda, Chiyoda-ku
Station: Tokyo and Otemachi
