First Visit To The Imperial Palace

We had the once in a life time opportunity to enter the Imperial Palace Grounds and see the incredible structure assembled for this rare event know as “Daijōsai”. These structures were recently constructed and then used in a centuries-old ceremony related to the enthronement of Emperor Naruhito.

These incredible structures were constructed by Shinto priest carpenters, and is considered to be one of the very most sacred rituals in Shintoism, which is the foundation of the Way of Japan.

Remember, Emperor Naruhito is the head of Shinto, and represents the Japanese people as a symbol of their peace and unity.

Best wishes to Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako for a long reign over the health, peace, and prosperity of the Japanese people.
