Kyoto, Japan - Nijo-jo

Kyoto, Japan - Nijo-jo

A panoramic taken as I approached the first of the inner gates of Nijo-jo, the main imperial palace in Kyoto. Nijo-jo is made up of several rings of walls, each with their own set of gates and gardens, and on the innermost ring is a series of beautiful gardens and royal buildings. Nijo-jo, along with Kiyomizu-dera, Fushimi Inari-taisha, Kinkaku-ji and Ginkaku-ji, is one of the most visited of the Kyoto landmarks. Photos taken using a Nikon Coolpix 3700, stitched in Photoshop by hand, partially incomplete as there is a few more frames to the right not added to the panoramic.
