  • The reason why we view this scene is that because it is near the hotel and because there are also many national and affairs departments in the vicinity, the security is deeper than that. Very time-consuming travelers take a lap of the emperor in the morning and take a walk along the River Yancheng.

  • A swan was swimming gracefully in the moat. I've been looking at it for a while. I feel relaxed! I don't think it's in the middle of Tokyo.
