A stone bridge at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo is seen lit up with LEDs during a test on Dec. 17, 2015, ahead of the winter lighting at the palace starting from Dec. 23. The Imperial Household Agency began the lighting event three years ago, during which the Nijubashi (double bridge) and stone bridges at the palace are lit up. This year, five spots near Tokyo Station, including the Otemon gate, will be aglow from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. through Jan. 3. (Mainichi)
