Historical place. IF you come out from this gate, you can see Capitol on your right. if you turn left, you will be approaching Ginza area. If you come in cherry blossom time, it is very beautiful.

Its just another gate of the Edo Imperial Palace complex, but you can find several cherry trees in here, excellent for pictures and very relaxing. Recommended to stop if you visit this area.

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art
