Ghosts at the Palace Hotel

(I like remembering how the hotel featured in the back of the scene was where James Bond stayed–I forget which movie. Also, the moat featured lies at the center of Tokyo. On the other side of the moat lives the emperor. The public is not allowed on the other side of the moat, into the palace grounds, except for two days out of the year. One of them is the Emperor’s birthday. There are guard towers on the inside of the palace, all around the perimeter of the guarding wall. At night you can see little orange cherries of light inside the guard towers from where the guards are smoking.)
