The Imperial Palace in Kyoto is an easy one. The majestic residence of Japan’s Imperial Family until 1868. Immediately on their departure to Tokyo, began the Meiji Restoration in 1869.
From the massive front gates made of imperiously dark cypress wood, throughout the entire complex of the Imperial palace – you will find yourself awed. Which is a fairly common and continuous state of being in Kyoto.
