Boats On Imperial Moat

Boats on Imperial Moat

Some boats were floating on the Imperial Moat

Shot at East Park in Imperial Palace, Tokyo.

The Imperial Palace is surrounded by moats because it was a seat of the Tokugawa Shogunate. And every moat has it's own name. The water in this photo is 'Inui Moat'. Inui is a direction and means northwest. The moat is located in the northwest of the main tower of the castle.

Before the castle was built, this moat was a natural river. And the tall stone wall was built along the valley. Time passed and the moat became a place for relief. Two boats are riding on the moat silently.
