Meiji Shrine and Harajuku Tour on April 16
- Meiji Shrine and Harajuku
Thank you for choosing our Meiji Shrine and Harajuku tour on April 16th, 2023. We welcomed 30 guests from USA, Peru, Canada, Australia, UK, France, China, Turkey, Germany, and New Zealand. I hope all of you enjoyed and shared interesting conversations with us during the tour. As promised, group photos and snapshots are attached to remember the fun times we had.
It was a sunny day and really comfortable for the tour. We were lucky as it rained heavily after the tour. The cherry blossom season is over, but we are very happy to welcome many guests. The new semester for students in Japan starts in April. New employees will also start working from April. Everyone is full of hope. A public holiday called Golden Week will be from April 29th to May 7th. Many Japanese are planning to travel as concerns about COVID-19 have decreased. I hope the world economy will be revitalized again.
Some guests challenged omikuji, a fortune-telling paper. Unlike most shrines, the omikuji at Meiji shrine has a waka poem written by Emperor Meiji and Empress Shoken, along with its meaning. A waka is a short poem sung in 31 syllables. One boy wrote a wish in French, but don’t worry. God can understand any language and will fulfill your wishes if you are a good boy.
