Katsura Imperial Villa

Listed under Castles & Palaces in Kyoto, Japan.

Pin It

The Katsura Imperial Villa (Katsura Rikyu). Sitting in Tokyo's western suburbs, and a one-time residence for the Japanese Imperial Family, this is a suitably regal retreat, with goldsmith's work decorating the lavish interiors, and a classically elegant garden; all lanterns and bridges. Visits by appointment only.
