Arrival of Winter; Tour Report of Asakusa and Ueno, 12 November 2023
Thank you very much to all the guests who participated in 4 tours on that day. It was a cloudy day with light rain from time to time. The temperature dropped significantly from a few days ago marked the record high for month of November. We felt like being in winter skipping autumn. According to the traditional calendar, since 8 of November, we’ve entered the beginning of winter season.
We hope all of you enjoyed and shared interesting conversations with us during the tour. As promised, group photos and snapshots are attached to remember the fun times we had.
On the first tour of the day, we hosted 5 people from New Zealand, Netherland and the USA at Sensoji Temple in Asakusa, morning time.
On the second tour at the same place in the afternoon, we hosted 3 people from UK and Australia.
On the third tour at Ueno Park, we hosted a gentleman from France in the afternoon.
Lastly, back in Asakusa, we hosted a lady from Italy in the evening.
That day’s issue of Tokyo’s local newspaper reported that this year over 13 million foreigners visited Japan from January to October. Before the pandemic outbreak, in 2019, over 31 million foreigners visited Japan but compared to last few years, the number is drastically growing since the pandemic restriction is lifted.
That is a very happy news for us. Yes, we can meet more people from abroad and share peaceful moments among one another. Some parts of the world are in turmoil but everyone deserves peaceful life. We hope we can always contribute to providing guests around the glove with fun and peaceful moments.
