As the autumn foliage peaks, Inui-dori street within the Imperial Palace is opened to the public.
The Imperial Palace is a special place that you can't usually enter, so I want to share it with everyone.

Today's autumn leaves
- About 120% autumn leaves
- Currently seen colors：■Red、■Yellow
The peak of the autumn leaves seems to have passed, and the red maple leaves are slightly rounded.
Arrived around 11:30 on weekdays, but it wasn't a long line.
There is a security check in front of Sakashita Gate.
The guards are very polite.
However, they are guided in Japanese, so if you don't understand the language, look for a signboard nearby.
Unlike Japanese, English has many characters, so it may be difficult to see the signboard.
An area open to the public
From the Sakashita-mon Gate to the Inui gate, the Inui-dori street that passes almost straight through is the subject of the exhibition.
When you walk straight from Tokyo Station, Sakashita-mon Gate is a little to the left.
Since this is the emperor's residence, it is an area that ordinary people cannot enter.
The "East Imperial Garden", right next to the Imperial Palace, is a free garden where you can enjoy many types of cherry blossoms in the spring.
I enter here, but I feel different from the familiar gate ... This is my first impression.
The inui gate is reminiscent of a gas lamp.
From the “East Imperial Garden”, you can see Fujimi-yagura nearer.
The most beautiful thing this time is the Japanese maple beside the Tsubone-mon Gate.
Did you feel the atmosphere of the Imperial Palace?
If you have a chance in the spring cherry blossoms and autumn leaves season, please go there.
Since Tokyo Station is within walking distance, there are many cafes around.
There is also a café where pizza toast originated.

See you at the next picnic!
