Japan Week #20 Ni-Jo Jo

July 20th, 2013

In the weekend of week 20 we went to Ni-Jo Jo. From what I recall this was a palce where the king once lived. I would have loved to be able to share some interior photos but that is forbidden at Ni-Jo Jo. The interior is very impressive though. If you are in Kyoto I would definitely say this is a place you should visit.

This is a view of the house area for the king from a high vantage point in the corner of the courtyard. It’s about 2-3 stories in the air looking down.

The garden along the outside of the castle is kept immaculate and trimmed to the smallest detail.

Anyways Ni-Jo Jo was a great place to visit. You can easily spend a few hours there just looking around. Definitely worth the visit if you are in Kyoto city.
