A normally restricted section of the Imperial Palace compound in Tokyo opened to the public on Saturday, allowing visitors to admire the blooming cherry trees there for the first time since 2016.

About 3,700 people lined up for their chance to walk along 750-meter Inui Street, which runs from the Sakashita Gate to the Inui Gate. The section is open to visitors through April 1 from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
