Imperial Palace opened for the autumn leaves

While we should pity the fact that the 84yo Emperor is not allowed to step down before April 2019, His Excellency can still wake up to this natural beauty in the back yard. 10,000s of people there but another 10,000 police doing checks. Having said that while the high police presence is visible the level of checks is still extremely soft. I honestly worry about the 2020 Olympics being a soft target for terrorism as described in this report   平和ボケ
