Rules for joggers round Tokyo's Imperial Palace - Telegraph
Tokyo officials are compiling a series of rules to deal with a surge in the number of joggers exercising along the fringes of the Imperial Palace.
Joggers along the route can take in views of the famous cherry trees of Chidorigafuchi, the picturesque northeastern moat of the palace, as well as the National Museum of Modern Art, parliamentary buildings and a distant Tokyo Tower.
However, more than 100 complaints have reportedly been received by police from pedestrians who claim to have been knocked by passing joggers, according to NHK reports.
The complaints combined with the growing popularity of the route have prompted the authorities in Tokyo to organise a series of meetings to discuss rules and guidelines to impose in order to ensure safety while jogging around the Imperial Palace.
