February 11, Asakusa and the East Gardens of the Imperial Palace
Many thanks for joining us on our tours at Asakusa and the East Gardens of the Imperial Palace on February 11. We welcomed 7 visitors from Australia, UK and America. It was a bit cold but lovely weather in the middle of winter. I hope all of you enjoyed our tours and shared with us an interesting conversation for a few hours. As we mentioned, the group photos and snapshots are herewith attached.
As you may have seen the Japanese flag being displayed at many places. February 11 is National Foundation Day and a public holiday to celebrate the founding of Japan. It is said that Jimmu, the first emperor of Japan ascended to the throne and started the nation on February 11, 660 BC. The national holiday began in 1966.
Once again, thank you so much for joining us on our tours. Please tell your family and friends how you enjoyed our tour when you return home and I hope to see you again in another one of our tours should you come back to Tokyo.
