The East Garden of the Imperial Palace is the location of an old castle of the Edo period. Many years ago the castle belonged to shoguns. Nowadays, this is the only part of the Imperial Palace that is open to public. Otemon Gates serve as the entrance to the beautiful, gently laid out garden. Centuries ago these gates were the entrance to the castle. The garden, which is partially surrounded by the former moat, is the place where inner walls and gatehouses of the castle are located. Besides this, the territory of the garden is home to a tea house, a pond and a waterfall.
