Akasaka Palace, Tokyo

In the very centre of Tokyo, hidden behind stone walls and a forest so thick it’s impossible to see through, is a place not many people know much about. Separate to the Imperial Palace, the Akasaka Imperial Estate covers about 50 hectares—almost the same size as Shinjuku Gyoen. It’s quite a chunk of central Tokyo!

  1. Thick forrest in a big city, awesome thing! I love the cities where you have a lot of trees and nature, all concrete and fancy buildings are just not my thing, but all that packed in nature is a real deal.
