And then we saw this:
The officer quickly told us what the building was, but we really had no clue...
And then we saw a huge group of people, and an official Imperial Palace tour guide. Apparently the whole group was waiting for us!? We were a little embarrassed, but the people smiled and said hi. *blush*
Off we went with the group to see the whole Imperial Palace ground.
I think some government officials actually work in here.
The whole Imperial Palace ground was divided into different sections with huge stone walls and trees.
OK, so I don't really remember everything I heard on the English audio or from the tour guide, but I did enjoy the beautiful scenery and the people!
I love these rain guides.
The "Pine Cone." I believe the Royal family meets people on the belcony.
Looking toward the "outside."
A place the visitors couldn't get too closed to. We looked at it on a bridge.
Big lamps on the bridge. They were huge!
I wonder if anyone lives in there.
Whoever is in there should have a great view of the city.
I wonder if the members of the Royal Family are the only people who can go into these awesome buildings.
