Street level Tokyo: what did Tokyo look like this weekend? :REAL ESTATE

Nationwide, people in Japan enjoyed a three-day weekend (March 20-22) and were greeted with a national holiday (Vernal Equinox Day) on Friday in the spring.

Below are amateur photos taken on the Tokyo subway to take a look at the street of what the city looked like this weekend.

Thursday, March 19 A panel of experts had recommended avoiding large gatherings and closed areas to control the spread of the novel corona virus. For the same reason, officials have also asked people not to do hanami (cherry blossom picnics), one of the most important and popular annual rituals in Japan. The photos below provide only some anecdotal evidence, but it seems that many people in the Tokyo metropolitan area have not followed these recommendations (except maybe near the Tokyo Tower?).
