'The Outer Palace of Chiyoda' is a companion series to 'The Inner Palace of Chiyoda'. It depicts the life of male members of the royal court and historic scenes from the outside walls of Chiyoda Palace.


During the Edo period it was forbidden to publish images of the ruling Tokugawa family or events connected to the Tokugawa clan. With the Meiji restoration came a relaxation of those laws and the public was finally able to indulge in images that portrayed the old ruling family, their daily life and activities and even historical events related to them.
