japan 2009: the emperor’s birthday


it was the emperor’s birthday on the 23rd of december. the crowd was insane and the security checks was really thorough.


it was a long walk from the gates to the imperial palace itself.


we stood in the sun for 30 minutes just to see the emperor and his family. lol.


when the emperor came out into his bullet proof balcony, all i could see was flags waving in the air. -_-


thanks to chadwick, we could see how the emperor actually looks like.

some shots taken on the way out:
