  • 2019.10.12

Following the cancellation of the tour at the East Gardens of the Imperial Place, this is to inform you that the Asakusa tours at 10am and 1pm and Ueno Park tour at 1:30pm on October 13th have been cancelled. This cancellation is due to the impact of the super typhoon No. 19 or Hagibis hitting Tokyo with violent winds and substantial rain. Although the typhoon will pass through Tokyo tomorrow (October 13th) am, the train services are expected to remain suspended for equipment inspections or substantially delayed. Under these circumstances it is difficult for us to ensure the satisfactory tours. We hope you will understand the situation and are looking forward to welcoming you at other occasions.
