Photographer's Note

This beautiful traditional Japanese-style ox-drawn carriage called in Japanese "Gosho-guruma" was displayed at the courtyard of the Kyoto Imperial Palace (Kyoto Gosho).

The palace functioned as the emperors' residence until 1869 when Emperor Meiji moved the capital to Edo or current Tokyo. To see inside the Kyoto Imperial Palace, you need to make a reservation in advance for a guided tour if you are there during any other time than when the Palace is open to the public for one week in spring and one week in autumn.
