Visited here last May when I couldn’t get into the Imperial Palace on time. Lovely place and the colors are awesome. My pics are all green leaves so the change is startling.

The Nijo Castle is a symbol of the power of the Tokugawa Shogunate. It is a nice destination to come along with family and friends.
