As well as glorious plant beds, the East Garden (Higashi Gyoen) of Tokyo's Imperial Palace hides a secret: ruins of the original Edo Castle which once stood here. Take a guided tour of the East Garden with a free walking tour from the Tokyo Metropolitan Area Systematized Goodwill Guide Club. Tours run today at 1pm; arrive ten minutes before and meet your guide outside the JNTO Tourist Information Centre, next to Exit 6 of Tokyo Station.
