A beautiful old style bridge crossing the moat at the Imperial Palace.
Liked these colors on the bridge structure.
There is a really nice mix of water and buildings in this area of Tokyo.
One of the many older buildings around Tokyo Station which as been preserved and incorporated into the development of a new taller building. Can you see the old building roof meeting the new glass building on the right side?
This is a nice park area with restaurant building and view back to Tokyo.
Fantastic water feature here in this park.
The skyline looking back to Tokyo Station. Who can spot Shin Maru Building?
One of the many old structures built into the wall of the moat.
A side entrance gate to the Palace grounds.
The weather was unusually warm and this snake seems to have come out from somewhere. Unusual to see a snake in central Tokyo.
Palace guard recruits reporting in after being outside the gates.
The buildings at Tokyo Station seen through the park.
A little bit of sakura color on the moat walls.
A nice blend of the old and the new.
The grounds surrounding the Palace are quite spacious. Can you see Tokyo Tower in the distance?
Another look at the Tokyo landscape. It really is quite different to say looking at New York.
The track around the Imperial Palace is popular for runners all day long. On weekends with good weather it is particularly busy.
Many runners enjoying the great day.
Nice looking tree in the grounds.
Great place to take a nap or catch up on the some reading.
Many people having picnics on this sunny day.
Looking back at the buildings.
Some of the old brick structures really have some character about them.
One of the new fashionable roads redeveloped along with the buildings.
