Iconic Imperial Palace Gardens Reopen for Tourists in Japan

TOKYO – Japan’s iconic Imperial Palace gardens in the capital city of Tokyo were partially thrown open on Tuesday for visitors after a two-month closure as the country gradually eases restrictions to contain the coronavirus spread.

The authorities will allow only 100 visitors a day in the Tokyo gardens, but will have to wear masks and undergo temperature checks before entering, according to the Imperial Household Agency.

The reopening of the iconic gardens comes a day after the city entered into the second day of ease of restrictions to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus infections.

Health emergency measures were lifted a week ago across the country.

Some other popular tourist spots of the country, such as Skytree tower of Tokyo, were reopened on Monday with a reduced number of visiting hours and use of elevators.

Todaiji temple in Nara, known for its 15 meters tall Buddha statue, also opened its doors along with Hiroshima Peace Museum with strict instructions to follow social distancing measures.

Disneyland Tokyo has, however, announced that it would remain shut despite the health emergency measure being lifted.

Universal Studios Japan in Osaka has announced that it will reopen on June 8 with restricted access measures.

Only the residents of the Osaka prefecture with annual passes will be able to gain entry but with a limited number of visitors inside the park.

However, from June 19 onwards, access would be extended to visitors residing in the other six prefectures of the Kansai region.

The reopening of these places begins even as Japan maintains its entry ban covering more than 110 countries due to the pandemic and could be eased in phases this month.
