One of the autumn leaves spots in the East Gardens of the Imperial Palace is Ninomaru Copse. Ninomaru Copse were created in the Imperial Palace by the idea of Emperor Showa, because copses were gradually lost in the suburbs of the city. You can enjoy splendid autumn leaves such as Quercus serrata, sawtooth oak, Japanese maple and wax tree.
Also, in the beautifully arranged Ninomaru Garden, you can see the colorful leaves reflected in the pond.
