Walk towards Nijubashi Bridge

Nijubashi is a double bridge. It consists of two separate bridges that span the wide moat surrounding the Imperial Palace.

The bridge’s structure combines both stone and iron elements. The stone arches support the ironwork, creating a harmonious blend of traditional Japanese architecture and Western engineering.

Historically, the Nijubashi Bridge served as the main entrance to the Imperial Palace. It was a pathway for dignitaries and guests attending royal ceremonies and events.

The bridge has become closely associated with the Japanese imperial family and symbolizes their presence within the palace. It is often featured in photographs and media coverage of the imperial family
