Cheerful walking with Chrysanthemum : Tour report of Meiji Shrine and Harajuku Tour on Nov 5th, 2023
On behalf of our guides, I just wanted to send a few words of gratitude. Thank you for
joining our tour at Meiji Shrine and Harajuku on Nov 5th. We welcomed 19 guests
from USA, Canada, Australia, Ireland and Indonesia. The group was divided into four teams. Although it was an unseasonably warm day, we enjoyed walking through the forest and town, where we could feel the signs of autumn.
We’ve posted group photos and snapshots so that you can look back on the fun times we had.
During the tour, we enjoyed Chrysanthemum exhibition in the main approach road. There were many varieties of beautiful flowers and elaborated presentations. The emperor Meiji and The Empress Shoken are enshrined in Meiji Jingu Shrine and Chrysanthemum is a family crest of the imperial family. In fact, the flower language of chrysanthemum is “Noble” in Japan. On the other hand, I heard in English speaking countries it is “Cheerfulness”. I feel like it symbolizes our tour, too!!
This exhibition will run until Nov 23rd. Why don’t you join our next tour on Nov 19th?
