Guide get-together


Professional tour guides take turns to practice their speech outside the Imperial Palace in Tokyo on Tuesday. Less than a month after lifting its seven-week pandemic state of emergency, Japan last week lifted all domestic business restrictions and people can now start traveling anywhere in Japan, though people are still asked to use physical distancing and other precautions.

No where to sit. Empty now, but usually that place is full of tourists, all exhausted from being on their feet all day. They'd like to stop and sit down and take in the view, but they have to stand. No choice. It's a pretty unfriendly place.

The green bollard has to be there I suppose.
