I had a meeting near the Tokyo Imperial Palace so Flat Jenny and I decided to take a walk around the Palace. Flat Jenny was surprised to find out that there are so many subway lines in Tokyo! We took the green one, the Chiyoda Line and got off at Nijubashimae Station.

Tokyo Imperial Palace is the main residence of the Emperor of Japan. We could also see the tip of the Tokyo Tower (see photo, a needle is like growing out from Flat Jenny's head) from the Palace!

We took a picture in front of the Nijubashi Bridge and the Sakurada-mon Gate. Nijubashi is only opened on special occasions so it was closed when we saw it. Sakurada-mon Gate was completed in 1620.

Flat Jenny seemed a bit tired but she said she enjoyed seeing some historical places in Tokyo! We took the subway on our way back too. We had a fun day!
