Kyoto Imperial Palace

Some detail of the roof line.

View through a gate into the main area approaching the imperial stand.

Another picture showing a closeup of the gate.

Part of the grounds around the palace. We were not able to see inside and all the imperial items have been moved to the new Imperial Palace located in Tokyo. The Kyoto Imperial Palace was used from the 800's to 1868, at which time they relocated to Tokyo.
