The tatami mat for the Emperor

Sennyuji Temple, Kyoto sightseeing
The Emperor used to sit on this tatami at annual events.

He sat on a higher place, a thicker tatami mat, and it is edged with wider belt than usual.

These mean that the tatami is for high-ranking people.

Ciao, ming!
It takes about two and half hours from Tokyo to Kyoto by express train, called Shinkansen. I think Tokyo is just like NYC and Kyoto is just like Boston.
