Tokyo Imperial Palace is the primary residence of Japan's Emperor; although, obviously, that area's closed to the public. You can get pretty close though if you book a slot in the free tour. If you want to explore the place on your own time, the East Garden is a vast green space that's great to just relax in. 🌲💆🏻♀️ We only covered about 1/4 of the entire area because it was so cold but I'll definitely make a trip back next time—I hear it's beautiful in spring! 🌸😍

Osaka Castle goes as far as 1583, can you believe that?! It has survived all catastrophes one can think of—wars, lightning fire, typhoon. Its beauty masks its scars like they never happened. When Vince and I visited the castle, a Taiko group served the tourists a spine-tingling performance that left me crying quiet and overwhelmed tears. Man, it was so soul-shaking, it was beautiful! I must book a class for a whole day just training Taiko when I go back to Japan!
