The Emperor's castle/Замок Императора

On our way from Japanese Diet (that's how they call their Parliament), we ran into the Japanese Emperor's palace. Unfortunately, the direction that we had taken led us away from the entrance. By the time we came to the entrance from the other side (after a two-mile detour), we decided to save the visit to the palace for some other time. Please enjoy the pictures of the outside of the Palace.

На нашем пути от Японского парламента, мы дошли до дворца Императора Японии. К сожалению, мы повернули не в ту сторону, так что нам пришлось пойти вокруг дворца прежде чем мы достигли входа. К тому моменту как мы нашли вход, мы порядком подустали, поэтому решили оставить посещение самого дворца на потом. А сейчас полюбуйтесь фотографиями окрестностей.




There are plenty of wildlife in the waters around the castle.

В пруду вокруг дворца обитают птицы, рыбы, и земноводные.






This is one of the lights leading to the palace. It shows how much longer it is for the light to be red. The count goes from top to bottom, by the amount of the red bars.

Это один из светофоров, ведущий ко дворцу. На нем видно, сколько еще гореть красному свету. Отсчет идет по красным палочкам сверху вниз.


There is a monument to someone along the way around the castle.

Памятник кому-то на пути вокруг дворца.
