Edo Castle - Review
Overview of Edo Castle
Edo Castle is also commonly known as the Chiyoda Castle. Built in the year 1457 by Ota Dokan, it is a flatland castle but boasts of a lovely architecture. It was basically the home castle to the dynasty of Tokugawa Shoguns who were responsible for the Edo government. The Edo government ruled Japan for roughly 260 years and this is how the castle gets its name. It is a definite must visit for history and architecture lovers alike.

Edo Castle, Chiyoda Reviews
Very beautiful during the cherry blossom (Late Mar - early Apr) crowds are large everyday but less during weekdays. Admission is free. Beverages are allowed (non alcoholic) but you must take a sip in front of officers for security reasons. Parking lot gets packed early so plan ahead or just walk. Highly recommend if your in the Tokyo area.
The castle ruins and the surrounding park are lovely to explore. We spent a few hours here and it was really nice. Its worth noting that the part is closed two days a week, and you should check if it is open beforehand.
Amazing to see this much open area in the middle of Tokyo. I visited the gardens the only bad part was it was raining so I didnt get to stay or explore everything that I wanted. Worth a visit if you like walking around. Also the walls are built with such intricacy crazy.
Very little to see, the castle ruins are just walls and the big base from main tower. Some small builidings are scattered around but very unimpressive. Most of the guardhouses are just for seeing outside.
A beautiful garden with lots of history but not much ruins other than the stone base of the walls and moats.
