Famous gate in Tokyo--Kyu Edo Jogai Sakurada

Updated: Jan 15, 2022

Touring Tokyo and a Journey through Japan-- these are two books I have written about my travels in Japan. Check these out!!!

The Sakuradamon gate was completed in 1620. Unfortunately the gate sustained grave damage due in part to the Great Kanto Earthquake that transpired on September 1, 1923. Thus, the earthquake had a devastating impact upon Tokyo. Soon after this traumatic event, however, the gate was eventually repaired.

During the Edo period, the gate had a great significance in Tokyo. The large outer gate is located next to the Eastern Imperial Garden’s entrance and south of the impressive Imperial Palace. Historically, the gate encircled the prominent Edo castle, which was erected in the mid-15th century. Today the Sakaradamon gate is open to the public and it is frequently accessed by joggers, bike riders, and tourists.
