Access to the majority of the Imperial Palace gardens is limited. The historical buildings are closed off, so they can only be viewed from a distance whilst reading a plaque. The walk through the park is nice, but not more than that. The best part is the Ninomaru Japanese garden, and well worth the walk in, but don't waste your time on anything else here unless you have plenty of time and nothing else to see.
Tip: Be wary of visiting at midday, as it can get very hot in the more open area of park, and there is not a lot of place to take refuge from the sun nearby.
