Nijō Castle #1

Posted by
Hiro (Kyoto, Japan) on 18 September 2019 in Architecture.

Nijō Castle is originally built in 1603 by Tokugawa Shogunate. It was used as an Imperial Villa after 1884. It is now owned by Kyoto City government and one of the World Heritage Site. It is open to the public, so you can enjoy the inside. This is the picture of the Southern Gate, which is now normally closed.
