Visit Report of Sakuradamon gate

The Sakuradamon Gate, designated as an important cultural property, was built on the inner moat of Edo Castle (present-day Imperial Palace).

The area surrounding this location offers an unobstructed view of the skyscrapers of the Marunouchi office district.

The reflection of the lights of the buildings on the inner moat is also a beautiful sight, and on days when the wind is calm, it creates a fantastic scene.

The illuminated Sakuradamon Gate seen from the Kasumigaseki direction is also beautiful, so please enjoy the night view while taking a walk around the Imperial Palace.
