Tokyo Imperial Palace ~ Weekly Photo Challenge ~ Symmetry

The Tokyo Imperial Palace is the main residence of the Emperor of Japan. Although the buildings aren’t open to the public, visitors can view them from Kokyo Gaien, a large plaza at the front of the palace. A large moat with massive stone walls is crossed by several bridges including Meganebashi – Eyeglass Bridge.

There’s plenty of symmetry to be seen in the ornamental fences, lamp posts and entrance gates.

Even the guard on gate duty is symmetrical!

  1. Beautiful … when I arrive the cherry trees will be blooming – can wait, at least I hope they haven’t dropped their flowers by 8th. Stay just next to the palace with view over the park – that image of the bridge … magical.
