Opening of Inui Street to the public (Tokyo Imperial Palace)

In Japan, there is a street open to the public only for several days a year, and each day, the gates open only 5 hours, from 10am to 3pm . The street is just about 750 meters long, and you can walk through it in 10 minutes if there are no obstacles. However, hundreds of thousands of people gather to walk along the street and enjoy viewing the scenery spreading out before their eyes. . .

Yes, this street is located in the Tokyo Imperial Palace, and you can watch parts of the palace grounds with your own eyes.

The beginning of this event was the celebration of Emperor Akihito\'s 80th birthday in 2014. Since then, following the people requests, The imperial Household Agency decided to open this area to the public annually. But it is still a very rare place to visit. So every visitor, including me, were walking on the street very slowly, watching and taking photos of the scenery which is hard to see again even for the people living in Tokyo.

Before you go, make sure to see their official website and check the details.
