Walked around the gardens and noticed the huge stones originally used to support structures and original gates and security accommodation and offices remain.The 100 year old (not in use) Tea House features near a pond. Overall the East Gardens was satisfactory but appeared unkept.
It is worth visiting these gardens. Just don't expect to see sights of the palace. The gardens are nice and there is a fair bit to see. Would have been nice to see just a little bit of the palace to complete the visit.
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
