Peru opened Machu Picchu for a single Japanese tourist”

He now had his entry ticket and authorization to get in the UNESCO World Heritage website on March 16 in hand, however that was when the Peruvian federal government made a decision to close the website. He used his embargo to practice his moves.

"I go to run every morning and I could see Machu Picchu afar in distance", Takayama informed CNN. "I thought I would never do this to Machu Picchu because I expected it not to open within this year". But I agreed because I had a great time here.

The most famous and perhaps best-preserved site that remains from Inca times is the citadel of Machu Picchu, located in Peru.

Step into Andean Roots Peru, a local tour company. With help from the National Ministry of Culture, Takayama was granted special permission to enter Machu Picchu - and get to the usually busy site nearly to himself. He was accompanied by two photographers who documented the experience and by Jose Bastante, the site's boss.

"I thought that I wouldn't be able to go, but thanks to all of you who pleaded with the mayor and the government, I was given this super special opportunity", he wrote in Japanese on his Instagram account. He added, "Peruvians are soooo nice". But it's going to be a bittersweet goodbye to all the locals with whom he's become friends over the months he's been stranded there. Several local children drew Katayama pictures and made a doll out of toilet paper rolls for him.

He told CNN: "I will definitely cry".

Machu Picchu is likely to be opened for visitors starting next month at limited capacity, as per reports.

The 26-year-old boxing instructor has been stranded in the country since mid-March and has living in the town of Aguas Calientes, on the slopes of the mountains near the site. We hope that we have succeeded by giving you the full details and information.
