Come and join the fun!  Tour Report of the Imperial Palace East Garden on 25 May, 2024

Hi, guys!

Planning a trip to Tokyo? Why not join our super fun and free walking tour?

We’re Tokyo Free Walking Tour (TFWT), a lively group of English-speaking locals who are passionate about Japanese traditions and love meeting people from around the world.

Today, we had an awesome walking tour of the Imperial Palace East Garden. Ten of our enthusiastic guides welcomed 24 wonderful guests from all over the world at Tokyo Station.

We split into four groups, with 2 or 3 guides per group, making sure everyone got a personalized experience. The weather was absolutely gorgeous, perfect for a stroll. First, we walked through the modern Tokyo business district. 

Then, we explored samurai castle towers, castle gates, old guard houses, stone walls, and a beautiful Japanese garden. Along the way, we shared fascinating historical backgrounds.

One guide explained with visual material, while another tailed captivating stories. We also wandered through a Japanese garden bursting with irises and azaleas.

Our tours are about more than just about history—they’re fun! With our small groups and multiple guides, there’s plenty of time to chat about food, culture, and swap fun stories. It’s like hanging out with new Japanese friends!

After 2 and a half hours of fun, we wrapped up the tour with a special kimono costume photo session. Our guests looked fabulous in traditional Japanese outfits and had a blast.
