(Mainichi/Tatsuya Fujii)

People take in the cherry blossoms along Inui Street on the grounds of the Imperial Palace on March 30, 2019. The Imperial Household Agency opened the street to the public as the 103 cherry trees in 31 varieties, including Someiyoshino and Edohigan, reached their pink peak. People can walk along the about 750-meter-long street from the entrance at Sakashita-mon Gate near Tokyo Station, to the exit at Inui-mon Gate in the northwestern part of the grounds adjacent to Kitanomaru Garden. The entrance is open daily from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. until April 7.
