At the garden

The Kyoto residence of Japanese emperors inspired this garden. That garden could never be attacked, and therefore possessed neither moat nor wall to protect it.

This open garden contains the beauty and peaceful feeling of history and expresses the communal spirit that has allowed the imperial family to continue for two millennia.
