I hope all of you enjoyed our tour and shared with us an interesting conversation of history and culture for a few hours. As promised, group photos and snapshots are attached. We were worried about the weather as it was drizzling in the morning, but soon after the tour started, the sun came out. The weather seemed to be on our side. Ten years ago, the surface of the moat was filled with migratory birds such as ducks, tufted ducks, pochard and so on, but because of global warming, the number of migratory birds has decreased dramatically. Even so, we were able to see migratory birds swimming slowly in the moat, albeit few. At this time of year, after the autumn leaves and before the cherry blossom season, there are not many things to see, but the Kawazu cherry blossoms and Japanese allspice were in full bloom, adding color to the desolate scenery. The guests were taking pictures of the blossoms. Once again, thank you so much for joining us on our tour. We are always […]
