[Movie] Pomp and circumstance

The Yomiuri Shimbun

The Yomiuri ShimbunA horse-drawn carriage proceeds toward the Imperial Palace after departing Tokyo Station during a mock procession on Gyoko-dori avenue on Friday. Real processions of this type are held for newly appointed ambassadors to Japan when they present their credentials to the Emperor. Imperial Household Agency officials conducted careful checks of the route, as the carriage’s departure and arrival points — which have been at the Meiji Seimei Kan building for about 10 years — will soon revert to the station.
