The interior of the Kyoto State Guest House is seen reflected in a pond on the evening of April 28, 2017 -- the first day of a public "special nighttime illumination" event. The guesthouse in Kyoto Gyoen National Garden in the ancient capital's Kamigyo Ward has extended its opening hours to 8 p.m. until May 4 so visitors can take in the illuminated grounds. (Mainichi)
