Nijo Castle, Ninomaru Palace. Kyoto

Киото, Замок Нидзё

Kyoto Nijo Castle (二条城, Nijōjō) was built in 1603.

In 1867, Nijo Castle was used as an imperial palace for a while before being donated to the city and opened up to the public as a historic site. Its palace buildings are arguably the best surviving examples of castle palace architecture of Japan's feudal era (i.e.medieval 1185 to 1868), and the castle was designated a UNESCO world heritage site in 1994.
