Tokyo Sights

Hirakawa-mon (Hirakawa Gate)

  • Viewpoint/Scenic Overlook

Updated 08/19/2013

Fodor's Review

The approach to this gate crosses the only wooden bridge that spans the Imperial Palace moat. The gate and bridge are reconstructions, but Hirakawa-mon is especially beautiful, looking much as it must have when the shogun's wives and concubines used it on their rare excursions from the seraglio.
