Tenshu (Donjon) of Edo Castle was located in the north part of the current East Garden of the Imperial Palace, right before the Kita-hanebashi Gate. Completed in 1607, it is said that a five-tiered castle tower with golden orcas towered over 44m square and 18m high masonry. It was destroyed by the large fire in 1657, and now only the donjon base remains.

Mostly ruins, parts reconstructed after World War II. Site today of Tokyo Imperial Palace, most materials you can find here are granite stone, earthwork, and wood. The tenshu (keep) was destroyed by fire in 1657, most of the rest was destroyed by another major fire on 5 May 1873. In use as Tokyo Imperial Palace.
