Three sections of the former Edo Castle — Honmaru (main castle keep), Ninomaru (second castle keep) and Sannomaru (third castle keep) — were turned into gardens and have been open to the public since 1968. The Ninomaru Garden is modeled after the Japanese stroll garden by Kobori Enshū, and is roughly 4.5 times the size of Tokyo Dome.
Western-style gardens can be found in the Honmaru and Sannomaru areas. In the East Gardens, you can still see some of the ruins of the former Edo Castle, such as the main tower, Fujimi-yagura keep, and the Fujimi-Tamon Defense House. The Museum of the Imperial Collections opened in 1993, displaying art pieces donated by the Imperial family.
