Visit Report of Sakuradamon gate

Sakuradamon, designated as an Important Cultural Property, was built in the inner moat of Edo Castle (now the Imperial Palace).

From this area, you can enjoy an unobstructed view of the high-rise buildings in the Marunouchi business district.

The sight of the lights from the buildings reflecting on the inner moat is also beautiful, creating a magical scene on calm days.

The illuminated Sakuradamon seen from the Kasumigaseki area is also stunning, so while taking a walk around the Imperial Palace, be sure to enjoy the night view.
