About 10:05 a.m. (the first), 10:00 a.m. about 30 (the second)
(at the time Imperial Palace Plaza passage estimated time)
gisoumasha is carriage displayed beautifully which is used when we hold important ceremony of the Imperial Family.
It is in gisoumasha from 1 to 4, and the most were made at the beginning of Showa from the end of Meiji, and have value of artworks.
When ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary from foreign country appoints newly, in the case of ceremony (shinninjoboteishiki) where handspike presents letter of credence to His Majesty the Emperor, we use gisoumasha 4 for pickup and drop-off of ambassador.
It is several countries including U.K. and Spain, but a lot of ambassadors hoping for carriage than car in the case of our country raise its fruit of international goodwill even if we look at country using carriage for pickup and drop-off of new ambassador worldwide.
