Sentō Imperial Palace

In Japan, the Sentō Imperial Palace (仙洞御所, Sentō gosho, litt. "Emeritus Imperial Palace") traditionally does not refer to a single location, but to any residence of retired emperors. Before Akihito abdicated in 2019, the last Emperor to retire did so in 1817, so the designation commonly refers to the historical Kyoto Sento Imperial Palace (京都仙洞御所).

The Kyoto Sentō Imperial Palace (京都仙洞御所, Kyoto Sentō-gosho) 22 acres (89,000 m2)) is a large garden in Kyoto, Japan, formerly the grounds of a palace for retired emperors. It is administered by the Imperial Household Agency and is opened to visitors.
