Two-Tiered Bridge (Ni-ju-bashi)

Two-Tiered Bridge (Ni-ju-bashi) Review

Making a graceful arch across the moat, this bridge is surely the most photogenic spot on the grounds of the former Edo Castle. Mere mortals may pass through only on December 23 (the Emperor's birthday) and January 2 to pay their respects to the Imperial Family. The guards in front of their small, octagonal, copper-roof sentry boxes change every hour on the hour—alas, with nothing like the pomp and ceremony at Buckingham Palace.
