"TOKYO (Kyodo) -- A group of rifle-carrying Ground Self-Defense Force troops in camouflage started a march through Tokyo's Itabashi and Nerima wards Tuesday as part of their training as rangers.

It was the first time in 42 years for armed GSDF troops to march through urban areas of Tokyo, with the last such occasion taking place in 1970, according to the GSDF."
