A UNESCO World Heritage Site now, it is surrounded by massive walls and a moat, Nijo Castle is famed for its lavish painted screens from the Kano school and the “Nightingale” floor that “chirps” when you walk on it.

Kyoto Imperial Palace: Kyoto Imperial Palace, which is also known as "Kyoto Gosho", is surrounded by beautiful entrance gates that are built in the traditional way. Each gate was used for different auspicious occasions and ceremonies.
