Designed during the Meiji era, the Eastern Gardens of the Imperial Palace have been open to the public since 1968. Sprawling over 210 thousand square meters (approx 52 acres), the green space includes not only traditional Japanese gardens, but a Japanese tea-ceremony room, a small forest, and the stone remains of Edo Castle. You can enter from any of three highly historical gates (Ootemon, Hirakawamon, Kitahanebashimon).
