Then we walked down to the Imperial Gardens only to discover they were CLOSED! We were very disappointed that we missed walking through the gardens, but we had fun walking around the Imperial Palace and taking pictures of the moat and outbuildings.
Our next stop was to see the Tokyo Tower. We had to get back on the metro and go to another section of town, but it was worth the trip. At the bottom of the tower is an old shrine. There were many visitors there today so we kept walking.
