Thousands Line Up To See Japan's Emperor in Tokyo Streets.

▶️ Tens of thousands of people lined up on a 5-kilometer stretch in central Tokyo, Sunday, November 10, to catch a rare glimpse of Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako.
👉 The motorcade was one of the final events of Naruhito's ascension to the throne.
Naruhito officially began his reign on the Chrysanthemum Throne in May, when his 85-year-old father, Emperor Emeritus Akihito, abdicated after four decades, citing failing health. Akihito, who succeeded his father, World War II-era Emperor Hirohito, was the first Japanese emperor to abdicate the throne in 200 years.
The 30-minute parade Sunday began at the Imperial Palace.
Some onlookers had camped out overnight in an effort to see the Japanese royalty in a specially-designed Toyota convertible.
