Running around the palace is a super nice experience. You get to see the old and the new of Tokyo. If you have time, walk inside the palace to make a visit tour.

For such an iconic view, one could predict the busloads of tourists, all with cameras, smartphones and selfie sticks in hand. But being patient eventually pays off. Although the view of the palace itself is interesting, the fences are remarkable.

The bridge is nothing special but you can catch a glimpse of the palace from the bridge and take some photos.

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
