Stop At: Nijo Castle, 541 Nijojocho, Nijodori Horikawa-nishiiru, Nakagyo, Kyoto 604-8301 Kyoto Prefecture

Nijo Castle or Nijojo, is former Kyoto residence of the shogun. It was built in 1603. Before being donated to the city and opened up to the public as a historic site, Nijojo was used as an imperial palace for a while. The exterior; the wide moat, massive stone walls, and heavy yet elaborate gates are still impressive, and were the only fortifications the inhabitants felt necessary, so firm was their grip on power. Not only powerful exterior, inside the palace are several masterpieces of Japanese art, most notably the painted screens of the main chamber.

Duration: 50 minutes

Stop At: Nara Park, 469 Zoshicho, Nara 630-8211 Nara Prefecture
