Plum trees in the East Garden of Imperial Palace bloom! The combination of pink and white color is so beautiful.


I guess beautiful Japanese spring season is around the corner, on the other hand….during the tour, it was raining unexpectedly. It might have been sleety rain according to the weather forecast. And also, chilly wind was blowing.

In such cold weather, I always have “Hokkairo” which is disposable hot pack, and of course I had them a lot on that day. It was always packaged in the plastic pack, and it becomes warm itself as soon as it opens. Originally it was developed in Japan, but I heard that we can get it not only in Japan but also some foreign country nowadays, however in Japan there are various sizes and types of “Hokkairoes”. I love sticker type for sole^^  You can get it cheap less than 50 Japanese yen each at the supermarket in Japan, so why don’t you get them as a souvenir?

We have a regular tour every Saturday and irregularly Asakusa and Meiji Shrine tour. Please check our website, Facebook and TripAdvisor.
