The Tokugawa Shogunate was based in Kyoto's Nijo-jo Castle. It was built by Tokugawa Ieyasu in 1603, to be his residence in the capital. The Palace’s main gate, Karamon Gate, with its superbly coloured carvings of 'pine, bamboo and plum with cranes' and 'chinese lion' motifs, is a highlight - and so is the impressive East Main Gate. Both are classified as Important Cultural Property. The gorgeous architecture and paintings on the walls of Ninomaru Goten are a sight to behold.
