Vlog on Emperor of Japan’s Birthday Celebration

The following are two vlog blogs on attending the Japanese Emperor’s Birthday celebration. The current Emperor is Akihito and his birthday – December 23 – is a national holiday.

The Imperial Palace area – Koukyo – is normally off limits to visitors except on December 23 and January 2 when the Emperor gives his New Year’s address.
