-Travel to Manchu-kuo Imperial Palace

The palace of Manchukuo was home to the last emperor of China, Pu Yi. The palace was the official residence created by Imperial Japanese Army for Pu Yi to live in as part of his role as puppet Emperror of illefitimate Manchu State. It is in the northeastern corner of Changchun, the capital of Jilin Province. Pu Yi, the last emperor in China, lived here as the puppet emperor of the Japanese after the Japanese took control over this area between WWI and WWII. In the People's Republic of China the structures are generally referred to as the Puppet Emperor's Palace & Exhibition Hall. The palace, covering an area 

of 43,000 square meters, was designed as a miniature version of the Forbidden City in Beijing and divided into an inner court and outer court. Before the palace, the area was the office building and salt warehouses of the former Transport Bureau designed by a Russian. After the Japanese took over and renovated it into a palace, they built several more buildings on the compound for Pu Yi and his family. The palace is a mixture of Japanese, Russian and Chinese style architecture. This imperial palace is, of course, completely different from any other Chinese palace due to the outside foreign influences and also due to the tragedy of the situation. The last emperor and his family lived in this palace from 1932 to 1945 till Japan surrendered in the WWII. Yet the Palace of Manchukuo is still a magnificent building to look at and wander around and learn about the last emperor of China when you travel to Jilin.
