It’s just my luck that my day one day off in Tokyo was a Friday, when the only publicly accessible part of the Imperial Palace (Kokyo) complex, the East Garden, is closed. (The Palace itself and the inner gardens are generally not open to the public. Only two days a year, the Emperor’s birthday and New Years, are the public allowed to enter.)
I got some great shots, though, of the Meganebashi (Eyeglass Bridge). The light was terrible since the sky was so overcast and bright. The conditions, though, did bring out the reflections of the bridge in the moat underneath making the “eyeglass effect” really prominent.
