Kyoto Nijo Castle reopens to the public, limited to Kyoto Residents Corona Virus May 18 13:19

Nijo Castle, a World Heritage Site in Kyoto, which had been suspended from the public due to the effects of the new coronavirus, has resumed to be open to the public in the form of only kyoto residents from The Day of The War.

Nijo Castle in Nakagyo-ku, Kyoto city has been suspended from the public since last month due to the spread of the new coronavirus.

The declaration of a state of emergency to Kyoto Prefecture has not yet been lifted, but since Kyoto Prefecture partially canceled the 16-day holiday request, it has resumed to be open to the public in the form of only the citizens of Kyoto Prefecture.

Before the start of the reception, we prepared to post a note calling for the wearing of masks and tape, which is a landmark for the interval when lining up at the ticket office.

When the exhibition started at 1a.m., nearby residents visited and enjoyed taking pictures of the gates and buildings.

In order to avoid denseness, the two-round palace of national treasures and the exhibition collection hall limit the number of visitors when the number of visitors increases.

The man who lives near by visiting with his wife said, “It is usually crowded with many people, such as foreign tourists, but today I thought it was vacant because it was limited to the residents of the prefecture. I wanted to feel open to it soon, so I want to enjoy it in a safe place.”
