Japan imperial couple rides through Tokyo in grand enthronement parade

Japanese Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako rode through central Tokyo on Sunday in a motorcade to mark this year's imperial succession as well-wishers waved national flags and held up mobile phones for snapshots of the smiling royal couple.

Emperor Naruhito, 59, acceded to the throne in May after his father, Akihito, became the first monarch to abdicate in two centuries.

Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako, Harvard-educated former diplomat, waved from an open-top Toyota Century limousine, which cruised through Tokyo streets lined with jubilant spectators as well as police officers, who were out in force.

Tens of thousands of spectators from across the country gathered along the 4.6-km route to watch.

New See-Through Public Toilets In Tokyo Let People See How Clean They Are Before Entering

Two new see-through public toilets have opened in Tokyo enabling users to check how clean they are before entering. Designed by Japanese architect Shigeru Ban, the stalls are part of a project organised by the nonprofit Nippon Foundation, titled 'The Tokyo Toilet'. The project asked artists to redesign 17 public bathrooms throughout the district of Shibuya in the hopes of making them more accessible and appealing. Located inside the city’s Yo Yogi Fukamachi Mini Park and the Haruno Ogawa Community Park the public conveniences have been designed with cleanliness and security in mind. Although the thought of the toilet's being see-through sounds off-putting these particular restrooms are made from “smart glass” that turns opaque when the bathroom is locked and occupied.
