O Castelo Nijo-jo era o alojamento oficial dos Shoguns Tokugawa quando ficavam em Quioto. Tokugawa Ieyasu (o primeiro Shogun) iniciou a construção dos edifícios em 1603, e Iemitsu (o terceiro Shogun) concluiu-os em 1626. Este foi também o local onde o último Shogun, Yoshinobu, restaurou a Lei Imperial em 1867. Há três belos jardins na parte interior do fosso; o Jardim Ninomaru construído em 1626, o Jardim Honmaru em 1893, e o Jardim Seiryu-en em 1965.

Born in the Portuguese countryside in 1990, I've been living in Japan since 2012. After finishing my Computer Engineering University Course in Lisbon, Portugal, I decided to study Japanese in Tokyo, with the purpose of continuing my studies there. After one year of studying of the language, I entered a Japanese Professional College where I finished my study in 2015. I am now working in a videogame Japanese company as Motion Designer. I also write in my blog about Japan. My goal is to introduce Japan to anyone who is interested in the culture, the language, the music, the anime, the food, and so on. And that's what you can find there: everything! Plus, my experience here as a Portuguese expat.
