What people are saying:

As the name suggests, the Erzhong Bridge has two bridges, which seem to be overlapped from a distance, but a yellow bridge and a black bridge are closer. There is a large square outside the Erchong Bridge. There are two trees on both sides of the square. Many locals spread picnic mats under the trees and let their children run freely under the trees.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Imperial Palace Main Gate Stone Bridge spans a section of the inner moat at Tokyo Imperial Palace. It leads to the main palace gate, which is not accessible to the public save for special holidays. The bridge uses a double arch design and is constructed with stone. Recognized as a national symbol in Japan, it provides a beautiful foreground to photos of the Imperial Palace complex. Originally the bridge was part of the defensive structures protecting Edo Castle and was designed to slow entry into the main grounds. When standing near the bridge, it is possible to feel transported to the Edo period and a Tokyo of old.
