Inui Street at Imperial Palace Opened to Public

Inui Street at Imperial Palace Opened to Public

   Tokyo, Dec. 1 (Jiji Press)--Inui Street at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo was opened to the public on Saturday as the Japanese capital is still in the autumn foliage season.
   Visits to the 750-meter street from the Sakashita gate to the Inui gate will be allowed between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. until Dec. 9.
   It is opened to the public twice a year, during the cherry blossom and autumn color seasons.
   The Imperial Household Agency started the road's public opening in 2014 to celebrate Emperor Akihito's 80th birthday on Dec. 23, 2013.
   The street's ongoing opening is the last during autumn before Emperor Akihito's abdication set for April 30, 2019, which will mark the end of the current Heisei era in the country.
