Sentō Gosho

The Sentō palace is part of the imperial palace (Kyōto Gosho) in Kyōto, Japan. It is the residence for the former emperor or his wife after death of the emporer. People usually get here for the wonderful garden attached to it. This classic Japanese garden was created in 1630.

You can find tea houses there, lots of moss and nice bridges over two ponds. The banks of the ponds are decorated with numerous stones from all over Japan. You can get access by joining a guided tour from the Household Agency. It lasts an hour and is solely in Japanese – visitors can get headsets with an English translation.
